Vanity Fair is exclusively reporting that lounge legend Dean Martin is the next person getting a hologram. It’ll come from a company simply called Hologram USA, which is also drumming up digitized, life-size versions of Whitney Houston, Buddy Holly and Patsy Cline.

“A new generation is about to be blown away by the extraordinary presence of Dean Martin,” says the company’s CEO, Alki David. The Dean Martin Family Trust is also working on the project.

Vanity Fair expects us to experience…

“…the effortlessly cool charmer as he performs a number of his timeless hits—'That’s Amore,' 'Everybody Loves Somebody,' 'You’re Nobody till Somebody Loves You'—and comedy bits that established him, with Jerry Lewis, as one of the most popular comedy duos in Hollywood history—and one of the most sought-after variety acts in Vegas for decades.”

Will Dean Martin inspire the same type of fevered chatter that holograms of Tupac and Michael Jackson? We'll find out sometime in 2016, a year that'll surely feature a deluge of other musician holograms. The future is now.
