No one made videos like Michael Jackson made videos. Before MTV, when videos were called promos, he was still winning with his sequin jumpsuit, shining in “Rock With You.”
Wednesday, on what would have been the King of Pop’s 60th birthday, his little sister and pop queen Janet Jackson teased a video tribute to “Remember the Time,” among the most iconic MJ videos.
In her version, Janet Jackson plays the queen like Iman did in “Remember the Time.” Only this time, social media stars Kwaylon “BlameItOnKway” Rogers and Andrew “King Bach” Bachelor are dancing for their lives to Janet’s latest hit with Daddy Yankee, “Made For Now.”
In honor of this special day, we look at some of Michael Jackson’s most fun music video moments:
“Remember The Time”: Michael Jackson played Eddie Murphy in his own castle, y’all.
“Smooth Criminal”: Did anyone ever find out whether Annie was OK?
“Thriller”: Night of the Dancing Dead.
“Billie Jean”: She was not his lover.
“Liberian Girl”: MJ trolled his celebrity friends and we liked it.
“Jam”: The two greatest MJs of all time.
“Scream”: Sibling rivalry or spaceship party for pop royalty?
“Bad”: Just imagine, Prince could have been his mortal dance enemy in this video.
“Rock With You”: Sequin jumpsuit. Nothing else was needed.
“In the Closet”: This could have been the best Calvin Klein commercial.
