So… which Michael Jackson video to run this weekend?
Youtube is a goldmine of MJ’s greatest moments. You could go all the way back to 1983 – his first on-stage moonwalk, at the 25 Years of Motown concert. Or even further back, to a 1972 performance of ABC, or this 1979 Carol Burnett Show sketch. There’s Thriller. Or there’s the Bad video, directed by Martin Scorsese. Or Scream, the most expensive music video ever. His 1995 MTV Awards performance, featuring Slash on guitar. A live performance of Smooth Criminal, with the “lean” (made possible by patented trick shoes). Black or White (also featuring Slash on guitar). Watch them all.
But here’s one that doesn’t get enough credit: Remember the Time. Great dance moves, tricky VFX, and Eddie Murphy as an Egyptian pharaoh.
