Michael Jackson Asked Lawyer to Fix Pinball Machine

All we can say on this is that we can’t confirm Whether Branca is one of our customers. From the article:

Early on, Jackson called him and said, “John, we have  to talk about something very serious.” Branca grabbed a pen and pad to take notes. Jackson told him, “My pinball machine isn’t working.’ 

We’re going to speculate that this was the same pinball machine that surfaced on eBay a few years ago. The game itself was a customized Pepsi game based on a Data East Lazer War.  At the time, it was one of the early games with speech in it, so they customized it with Michael’s voice. It also had custom side art and a custom backglass as well.  This was all done during the MJ/Pepsi era.
