Golden Harvest

When your life comes to an end, how much money do you think you’ll make the year after you die? That might seem an odd question – pointless, one would think, not just because you wouldn’t be alive to have the money but you also wouldn’t have done anything to earn it.

Well, that works slightly differently for celebrities. If they’re still successful when they pop their clogs, they can still earn an astonishing amount of money while doing nothing other than slowly decomposing due to marketing deals, record sales and the auctioning off of their prized possessions.

And it’s not just recently-dead actors or musicians either; there are celebrities who’ve been dead over 40 years who are still cleaning up, and that’s either a testament to their talents and keen business savvy or just to the unstoppable modern consumer mindset.
