We've heard the stories, seen the pictures - now see the video. Conspiracy theorists rejoice as we bring you the latest twist in the unfolding drama that is Michael Jackson's afterlife.

A *video is floating around on 'tinternet that purports to show Michael Jackson 'still alive' and walking out of a coroner's van after his death on June 25.

Wish you were still here...

It's been two months since the gloved one passed away, which is just long enough for conjecture and rumour to reach fever pitch and send the 'wish you were still here' fraternity into a longing spin.

The shaky 29-second clip was posed on LiveLeak yesterday, along with a statement by its author LosAngelesCot24: "This video shows that Michael was still alive after his dead body was transported to the Los Angeles Dept of Coroner," he declares. Of course it does.

"I checked the license plate number and it looks like the King of Pop is jumping out of the same van, his dead body has been in."

A man can be seen popping out of a van in the video, dressed in black pants and white shirt - Jacko's trademark clobber.

The user claims to have obtained the video from a "trustworthy" source. *cough

"I got the original video tape from a trustworthy source. I know him for years. And I am sure it's real and Michael is alive," he said.

There's no datestamp on the vid, and while the figure appears to have Jackson's build and dark hair, his face is entirely obscured. But that won't stop the conspiracists.

Watch the video below:

We think this'll send super-sleuthing sister La 'murder on the dance floor' Toya over the edge.

The old bat says she's convinced her brother was murdered by a group of conspirators trying to get hold of his fortune.

He's alive!

What's surprising is the fact that the conspiracy theorists took so long to pimp the old "he's still alive!" angle.

And how will they top this video? Pictorial evidence that Jackson and Elvis Presley are in fact alive and kicking and running a chippy together in Vegas?

What do you think? Did pop's Willy Wonka pull the ultimate Houdini and hoodwink us all with his bag of tricks? Or is this all a load of old off the wall hokum?

*No, we haven't had a bowl of crazy for breakfast. We don't believe this video is authentic for a second. It's entertainment. But what if...?
And now for this...

Exclusive: Sneak peek at the making of the 7 Worlds Collide album, The Sun Came Out.

We've sweet-talked the good folk at Sony Music into bringing you this making of video offering a behind-the-scenes look at Neil Finn's pet project, the second 7 Worlds Collide album, The Sun Came Out.

Finn plays a central figure in the album, out on Monday, but some other familiar faces from the original album, Johnny Marr, Ed O'Brien and Phil Selway of Radiohead abound too.

Recorded in an intense three weeks here in New Zealand, the double album of original songs also features a whole host of new guest talents such as KT Tunstall and Wilco.

Bottom line: It looks set to be a ripper.
