I collect, I reject: Michael Jackson's hair

Here's something for the person who has everything, but sense: The chance to buy Michael Jackson's hair, salvaged from the Pepsi advert shoot and up for auction:

Unaware that he was on fire Michael continued to perform until Executive Producer of the Pepsi commercial, Ralph Cohen, rushed to aid him. As seen in the infamous video, Cohen threw his Armani jacket over Jackson's head to help extinguish the flames.

Michael was taken to hospital only after reassuring the 3,000 strong audience that he was ok.

On removing his jacket Cohen found Michael's hair attached to the inside lining. The lot comprises strands of the hair retrieved by Cohen.
3,000 people watching a man film an advert for a fizzy drink - but only one got some hair. Apparently, which he kept.

The starting bid being sought for this is £100. Which might sound ridiculous, until you hear that Justin Beiber's hair is going for £20,000. Double what a flag signed by Castro and Guevara would cost you.
