Michael Jackson's passing had everyone talking last week and has had a huge impact on the Internet. Twitter was reportedly shut down the day of his death due to an overload of tweets, Google searches for Michael Jackson skyrocketed and Amazon and iTunes saw record sales for Michael Jackson mp3 downloads and CDs. YouTube is also getting its share of hits, as fans around the world remember the King of Pop through his videos. For ad industry people looking to geek out on some Michael Jackson memories, AdAge has a great piece today by Bob Giraldi , who directed commericals starring Jackson during the BBDO/Pepsi days.  And YouTube's got it all, or course.
