Untitled[edit source]

The trivia should state that the costumes are based on Freddie Mercury of Queen and Gene Simons of KISS

The picture of Freddie Mercury this is based on:

I would edit it myself if I knew anything about writing ^^ I didn't want to mess up the article.

they both have the same similar bars across the torso and lower abdomen, so it can be drawn that when the coat was designed both coats were taken into account therefore to provide a full view of the design you could include both coats for a comparison

Take another good look at the picture that other user posted. It's a reference to Mercury, not Lennon. MolMan 02:47, August 9, 2012 (UTC)

thats not to say mercury was not emulating what lennon did, so it seems likely that both should be included as a source or reference

He wasn't, even if he was it doesn't matter in the article as it's a direct reference to Mercury and there's no way around that. MolMan 02:51, August 9, 2012 (UTC)

still, do you agree that if one saw it they could intepret it as either being based off queen or the beatles sgt pepper album

No and it does not belong in the trivia section. Besides, John Lennon's coat has red embellishments, something neither Ping nor Mercury have. MolMan 02:57, August 9, 2012 (UTC)

yes but given the fact that ping's collar macthes neither of the coats and the fact the sleeves are rolled up on lennons as well it is more closely based on lennons

It does not matter; it's a reference to Mercury and it will stay written as such, now stop trying to argue. MolMan 03:04, August 9, 2012 (UTC)

im not arguing, i just wantthe reference to be correct

It is correct because it does not reference John Lennon, it references Freddie Mercury. MolMan 03:08, August 9, 2012 (UTC)

well wat if someone else tries to say different about the reference because of the dissimilarities of both coats? just because it says freddie mercury dosnt mean someone could see it that way n could try to change it

Then the change will be reverted because it is, most definitely, a reference to MERCURY. MolMan 03:17, August 9, 2012 (UTC)

and even the base coat of the color is leaning toward either or becuase all 3 colors of the coats are very similar, pings is not bright enough to be mercurys or dark enough to be lennons

Yellow is yellow. Stop trying to get your incorrect reference added to the contents of the page.. MolMan 03:23, August 9, 2012 (UTC)

im not saying its incorrect, it could be either or

and ur basically saying the coats are all the same color, another reason it could be a reference to lennon or mercury

I'm not going by color, I'm going by design. It is a reference to Mercury, any tidbit about Lennon will not be added. Conversation over. MolMan 03:27, August 9, 2012 (UTC)

well personally dont you think there is a vauge similarity bewteen all 3?

NO. The conversation is over and Ping's jackets have clear similarities with Mercury's. MolMan 03:30, August 9, 2012 (UTC)

well either way it is a decent looking jacket.. but penguins aside whose jacket do u think looks better? lennons or mercurys?
