Joe Jackson Hocks Perfume in Tacky Mall

Joe Jackson Hocks Perfume in Tacky Mall

2/3/2012 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF



Joe Jackson must have been having an out-of-body experience Friday ... the man who played the role of marionette to one of the most successful musical groups ever spent the day hocking cheap perfume at a Las Vegas mall.

Joe was the special guest at the Julian Rouas Paris kiosk, which is hocking "Jackson Perfumes."    A famous sketch of Michael Jackson looms large amidst the perfumes. 

And the whole operation may be illegal.

As TMZ previously reported -- Bravado International -- which owns the trademark to all things Michael Jackson -- is suing Julian Rouas Paris, alleging the company never got permission to use Michael's name or image.

But that didn't stop Joe, although it appears he dozed off during the slow period.

The good news ... there's no line if you want an autograph.

So the guy sitting down is supposed to be Joe?  I can't see him clearly.  Does anyone know if there are clear pictures of him doing this?
I think something smells, lol.  Michael, what are you up to now??

I really don't get why Joe would do this. He should stay at home, he's in his 80s, why can't he just enjoy the time he still has?
Why would he look for trouble with the Estate anyway?

People want the real deal...not Joe's perfumes.

Yes, the picture is too blurry to recognize Joe. I wonder if Joe is really involved, there's no proof though.
Anyways, it is respectless to fight over Michael's legacy, like he is some sort of product  >:(, but that is my personal opinion and I guess I will never be a sly business woman :lol:. This reminds me of an article I've been reading some time ago:

Cashing in on Michael’s Legacy
Jul 15, 2009 8:00 PM EDT

Licensing deals could earn the Jackson estate hundreds of millions. But will his legacy be exploited for the potential windfall?

Whose lifestyle was more outlandish: Michael Jackson or Andy Warhol? For many of us it seems like a tossup. But Michael Stone believes Jackson has the edge—and Stone should know. For eight years, until recently, he served as a consultant to the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, helping them commercialize the art icon's legacy. Warhol, with his signature choppy white mane, was known for surrounding himself with "a menagerie of porn stars, drag queens, drug addicts, musicians and free-thinkers," according to Wikipedia. One of the most influential artists of his times, Warhol, called the "Pope of Pop," was "not the most conventional personality," says Stone. Yet Stone was able to help the Warhol Foundation, which controls the copyright to all of the artist's work, amass an endowment exceeding $240 million (proceeds go to supporting the arts) from licensing deals.

Thanks to Stone, Warhol, who died 22 years ago, lives on in Andy Warhol Union Square eau de parfum ($195 an ounce); Seiko Warhol watches ($35 to $300); as well as magnets, calendars, home furnishings, and handbags. He believes the lifestyle of the "King of Pop," a.k.a. Michael Jackson—with his physical transformation, his Neverland ranch, and his odd parenting theories—is more bizarre even than Warhol's. Yet Stone marvels at the prospects for commercializing Jackson's legacy. Stone, the top executive of Beanstalk, the branding subsidiary of global ad giant Omnicom, has represented Mohammed Ali and currently advises, among others, Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen. He talked to NEWSWEEK's Johnnie L. Roberts about whether he thinks Michael Jackson's legacy will be exploited like Elvis Presley's or guarded like John Lennon's.

How did you get involved with the Warhol Foundation?
For many years, we represented Coca-Cola Co. And there came an opportunity to seek out rights to use the Andy Warhol artwork of the Coke can and bottle. In that instance, Coca-Cola owns the copyrights to the Coca-Cola trademark, and Andy Warhol owned the rights to the artwork itself. Neither side could exploit the artwork without the consent of the other. So we sought out the rights from the foundation, and that's how we were introduced to the Andy Warhol Foundation. Subsequently, they hired us to develop licensing programs—the rights to use his work, signature and things like that.

Tell me about the strategy that you helped devise.
It basically was to leverage the archives and to develop products that would be targeted more at an upscale channel of distribution. So products you would find in department stores, for example, not mass merchants. And the concept was to focus on certain categories like products for the home, apparel, accessories, health and beauty products, accessories like watches and jewelry, things like that. And it's basically a worldwide strategy—40 licensees in over 55 countries. One licensee could be making 10, 20, 30 different products. We, for example, recommended Robert Lee Morris as the jewelry licensee. There are many, many pieces of jewelry in the Andy Warhol Collection at Robert Lee Morris.

How does the Warhol experience relate to what we will see unfolding with Michael Jackson? What's your sense of the scale of the commercialization in his case?
As a branding specialist, it's the most fascinating thing to see unfold. The first thing that has to be determined is, who owns what? And who's controlling what? Because right now you've got counterfeiters all over the place. Nobody can really stop it because nobody is in control of the rights right now. I don't know if that will be easy to get through, or whether there will be a lot of fighting about it to determine who owns what rights. That was not an issue in Warhol's case. That will be a major issue in the Michael Jackson case.

How difficult and how long might it take to settle that matter?
It could be resolved quickly. Or it could takes years. It's not just one set of rights. There are music rights. There are album-cover rights. There are television rights. There are rights to his name, likeness, image, and signature. There are so many different rights floating around. Then whoever controls the rights will have to decide how they want to commercialize Michael Jackson.

So give me some idea about the scope of possibilities for turning his legacy into income.
The spectrum begins at Elvis Presley on one end, where people are barely listening to his music anymore, and his legacy is basically the theme park, Graceland, in Memphis; a whole bunch of impersonators in clubs across America; and a slew of merchandise, from T shirts to belt buckles to baseball hats. On the other extreme, there's another revolutionary musician, John Lennon, whose image and legacy has been protected by his estate, and who is known for his music and his ideals, with very little other commercialization being done against that image. So those are the two ends of the spectrum, and I'm beginning to get a feeling about where Michael Jackson is going to fall. Quite honestly, even though I'm a licensing guy, it's a shame.

I honestly don't think that's Joe. He doesn't wear a hat like that, and that guy's too slim.  I don't think Joe would stoop to doing that anyway. No way, he's got some class.


Everlastinglove_MJ, interesting in your article whether MJ’s legacy will be over-kill like Elvis or restricted like Lennon. I hardly see any MJ products around anywhere.  I would buy more if I saw more, but there's practically nothing. But maybe that drives up prices, which is good for the estate.

This isn't part of any plan - it looks more like people trying to take advantage of Michael's parents, actually. And from what I could see? NO; that wasn't Joe. That's the Media for you, sheesh!

Here's two articles -

JRP never licensed Michael's likeness, btw:

http://www.tmz.com/2011/01/20/michael-jackson-howard-mann-lawsuit-copyright-lawsuit-suit-trademark/#.TyxCDd1Vclo

It's vultures, taking advantage of both parents, unfortunately. This is why Branca is in charge.

Maybe because he is used to getting attention and he´s used to having crowds around him...which did allegedly not happen in this case.
We don´t know if it´s Joe in the picture sitting there quite lonesome. We only know that he indeed launched a perfume in a mall in Las Vegas.

What do the executors doing about this? If I am not mistaken they are the ONLY ONES authorised to use Michael's name and are responsible for his estate.
And what about "the man who played the
