VINTAGE x MICHAEL JACKSON x EDDIE MURPHY x IMAN

WHAT.A.LEGEND

(watch this while working on your party trick to please the princess)

Lets take a moment to appreciate the genius that was Michael Jackson. I LOVE MJ. Without him who’s to say music TV would’ve risen to the levels it has… The creator of the “short film” with the world changing Thriller, this was his second longest performance on the small screen. Directed by none other than John Singleton, (think Boyz N The Hood, 2 Fast 2 Furious and Four Brothers!) this is essentially a mini-movie with a star cast, Eddie Murphy in his prime and the ridicul0usly beautiful Somali-American Iman.

This video has it all, slick production, humour, a seriously awkward kiss, a chase, egyptians, a dance, LION CUBS, MAGIC JOHNSON!! This video really brings me back and most likely helped further my love of music videos while reducing my chances of seeing the sun  as I repeatedly watching the Dangerous on VHS! Can you imagine being at THIS GIG!? Oh and Prince drops by later on…
