Eerie Video – Who Sold It
July 16, 2009 by admncc
I know it’s rare for me to publish two posts in one day, so please check out “Cell Phone Shots – Volume III” and keep the comments coming on that one if you haven’t already done so. But there’s another topic worthy of a post today.
If you haven’t yet heard, US Weekly obtained and released the video yesterday of Michael Jackson’s infamous accident from the January 1984 Pepsi commercial shoot. You can view the minute and a half video here. It is difficult to watch as Jackson’s hair catches on fire and he (not realizing) continues to dance. Five people quickly rush to Jackson’s aide and tackle him.
I don’t know about you, but I have never seen this video before – only the pictures that were made available over the years. So, a few weeks after the “King of Pop” dies, this video is suddenly released? Pepsi denied that they released it and said they don’t know who owns the rights to the footage.
Let’s see – the footage looks professional, but yet Pepsi doesn’t own it? OK! Then I wonder who owns it. Or should I ask, did someone in Jackson’s family sell the video rights for money? I hope not. What do you think?
