Hollywood actor Ashton Kutcher has spoofed Micheal Jackson's infamous incident of dangling his son Prince Michael II from the fourth floor of a hotel room in Germany in 2002.
Kutcher, who was in Germany for the premiere of his wife Demi Moore's film, Happy Tears was in the same fourth floor room of the hotel where in 2002 Jackson brandished his son, reports dailymail.co.uk.
In the video of his antics posted on a website, Kutcher is first seen in his room at Berlin's Hotel Adlon where, along with actress Parker Posey, he dresses a doll named Gwendolyn up in a medical mask to re-enact the scene in the room.
The pair use a string to make a safety harness for the doll before dropping it a few times to show it is secured in a harness.
Preparations over, Kutcher speaks to the camera from outside the hotel and a figure then emerges onto his balcony, while the actor gives a running commentary from the ground.
Then, in a departure from the original scenario, the doll is hurled off the balcony.
No baby, however, was thrown in the real incident involving Michael Jackson.
But the singer was heavily criticised after lifting his nine-month-old son over the railings seven years ago and dangling him from the balcony.
