Joe Jackson

Hocks Perfume in Tacky Mall

2/3/2012 4:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Joe Jackson selling perfume at the Julian Rouas Paris kiosk
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.

Would that be "hawking" as peddling, offering for sale or do you REALLY mean "hocking" as in pawning?

Somebody should have punched him in the face for raising one of the most dangerous pedophiles ever, Michael Jackson.

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.

What I Think    

Is he hocking the same brand of perfume that MJ wore? Just wondering.

Snowman with a Turnip Nose    

A "marionette" isn't exactly the one who deals out the beatings, is he? And he "hawked" perfume. He didn't "hock" it. Another TMZ English 101 fail.


Additionally, the whole point of the story seems to be that, apparently, there is zero interest in anything Joe Jackson does. So why should TMZ's readers give a toss?
