A rice farm in Taiwan is using one of music’s biggest stars to keep birds away from its crops. is reporting that Lee Ping-hsing has created two scarecrows that resemble Michael Jackson.  One scarecrow is wearing white sequined gloves, a black fedora, and black pants, while the other one sports a jacket similar to the one Jackson wore in his “Thriller” video. Ping-hsing explained his creations saying, quote, “I thought, since Michael is good at grabbing his bird, I’m inviting him to grab ours.” Not everyone on the farm enjoys the King of Pop-inspired scarecrows, as Ping-hsing says his grandfather is afraid Jackson’s spirit could, quote, “come and haunt us.”
