    I could be wrong, but...I...don't think music videos even had choreography before Thriller? Like, wasn't Thriller the first music video to ever feature a group of people all dancing in sync? Music videos were still a pretty new medium at the time so I think Thriller really was the first. 'Beat It' had some in sync choreography, but nothing like Thriller. That was more like a routine. When you look at it like that, and how many careers that one video birthed as a result...its hard to deny Thriller.

    Smooth Criminal. I love Thriller and used to play the actually record on the old record player and when that song came on it was over my little ass dancing like a fool. But Smooth Criminal and what I remember of Moonwalker, MJ was the coldest in that shit. Kickin ass while dance and shootin a dude then just bustin with a tommy gun. That damn lean almost made me crack my damn head open as a kid and when the dude died a few years back (I was on MJ kick an hour before the news hit that he died actually). I still do little dances while sitting and listening to to it.

    I remember my dad showed me this when I was younger when I asked him how they do that, my dad was trying to get something patent in the early 90's and that's how he found out about MJ's patent.

    That's crazy that u say that because, that morning on the day he died I was playing nothing but MJ getting ready for work, going to work, at work, leaving work and before I went to school, I took a nap and my cousin texted me that he was in critical condition I was like ok I hope he is alright then, he texted me 5 minutes later and said he was dead, my cousin lives in California so he knew why before it was on CNN here in Georgia.

    WELL I WAS AROUND WHEN THRILLER DROP and as a young pup in 1983 I remember the anticipation for the thriller video was fucking huge and when the video dropped it was so damn big that it was the talk that whole year.

    When when me and my sister went to my grandma's house they taped the video from late night video show and we used to the the whole zombie thriller dance infront of grandma me and my cousins...



    Michael Jackson's Thriller is a 13-minute-and-43-second-long music video for the song of the same name released on December 2, 1983 and directed by John Landis, who also co wrote the screenplay with Michael Jackson.

    Voted as the most influential pop music video of all time, Thriller proved to have a profound effect on popular culture, and was named "a watershed moment for the [music] industry" for its unprecedented merging of filmmaking and music. Guinness World Records listed it in 2006 as the "most successful music video", selling over nine million copies. In 2009, the video was inducted into the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress, the first music video to ever receive this honor, for being “culturally, historically or aesthetically” significant. It is also the most watched music video of all time, seen by more than four billion people all over the world.
