Who paints a Michael Jackson memorial mural on a Nissan GT-R?S

Has the King of Pop's tragic passing ever been better memorialized than as this disturbingly detailed mural of Michael Jackson's life on a highly-modified Nissan GT-R? Prepare yourself for a moonwalk through insanity.

Photographer Rob Shaw captured an impressive set of photos from Nissan's Nismo Festival 2011 at Japan's Fuji Speedway, but we can't stop looking at this seriously messed up GT-R.

If you're following this Godzilla on the track you're going to be staring at a creepy, never-blinking image of a young MJ staring right back at you. Flanked on either side are the dates of MJ's death (June 25th 2009) and the words "Live" and "Die."

Morbid, dude.

But it doesn't end there. The rest of the vehicle features images of MJ in various stages of his life and tours as well as a few unique paintings. It's hard to tell if there's a section on the car dedicated to The Jackson 5-era MJ, but would you be surprised?

The owner of this vehicle appears older and, you know, maybe just loves racing and MJ and wanted to combine the two. We just wish he'd make his affections a little less unnerving. (Hat tip to Jo!)
