Because we will undoubtedly make reference to Thriller this month on The Nostalgia Blog, it seemed appropriate to throwback to the less popular short Halloween-like film Michael Jackson released entitled “Ghosts.” In 1997, The King of Pop released a short film/music video that was co-written by horror writer Stephen King. In it Jackson plays a scary Maestro with supernatural powers who is being forced out of his small town by its mayor. Jackson also plays the mayor and 3 other characters…props for doing a decent job. I fondly remember the 3D graphics including Jackson breaking his skeleton-skull. The 30+ minute film was shortened for music video release (song also called Ghosts), which you can watch below… Advertisements
Two things are a necessity at Halloween. The first is watching Michael Jackson’s iconic video Thriller. The second is eating 234 Snickers bars (full size, none of this bite-sized bullshit). Since I don’t seem to have any Snickers around, I guess we will watch the video for Thriller. “Did you eat all the Snickers?” NO! “Common man, there are Snickers wrappers in your teeth. You clearly ate 234 Snickers and didn’t even bother to unwrap some of them” Whatever! I don’t need to take this from you! You aren’t my real dad! Enjoy Thriller everyone!
Sometimes I feel the need to do a funny little write-up for videos, but sometimes the clips just speak for themselves. This is amazing! …
Guess who’s back? In this week’s Throwback Thursday, Ben plays us one of his childhood/teenage favourites.
