Coachella audiences were shocked this past weekend when Tupac Shakur appeared on stage to perform with Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre. Thanks to some incredible Oscar-worthy special effects people, the rapper—who was tragically murdered back in 1996—was resurrected via hologram for this special performance. And it’s got the world buzzing.
Now that Tupac’s performing in holograms, maybe I can get him for a guest shot on, “Fresh Hell”.

Brett Spiner, Data from popular sci-fi TV show “Star Trek,” is no stranger to holograms, as they were a huge part of the show. The actor now hosts a sketch comedy web-series called “Fresh Hell” and mentioned Tupac’s hologram making an appearance. You know what would be better? If Data met Tupac.
The android would no doubt be shocked by Tupac’s use of language, but impressed by the technology used to create him. We imagine he’d want to study the advanced hologram, and possibly even talk about what it was like to go from a human with emotions to a mere projection of a person. Maybe Spiner should tweet @HologramTupac to get something in the works. We’d sure watch it!
