Its Halloween! Watch Michael Jackson’s Thriller
(KTVI) – When is the last time you watched the Michael Jackson’s classic Thriller video? I’m guessing it was a year ago.
The 13 minute video made its MTV debut on December, 2 1983. The video was voted the most influential pop music video of all time. Jackson’s co-star in the video was former Playboy centerfold Ola Ray.
It starts with a disclaimer by Jackson, “Due to my strong personal convictions, I wish to stress that this film in no way endorses a belief in the occult.” This was because Michael Jackson was a Jehovah’s Witness at the time.
The video has 153 million views on YouTube. That blows away most viral videos on the web. This is amazing since the video was made over 20 years before YouTube existed.
