A description now rendered quaint.

No one had mentioned Tony to me before, but he was impossible to forget once you saw him. He was thin and tall -- he towered above everyone else -- and had an elaborate, highly styled haircut. The fact was Tony looked exactly like Michael Jackson. Even the color of his skin was Michael Jackson's.
