Thriller

With Halloween being celebrated this weekend (the video's story line is about the supernatural), the release of "This It It" on cinemas just days ago, and the great interest on anything Michael Jackson prior to his death (which is still hard to believe months after); I thought it would be quite fitting to post a photo of "The King of Pop", Michael Jackson on one of his career's most iconic moments....the "Thriller" video.


Besides being the longest music video in history and one of the top selling singles ever, "Thriller" is not only a milestone in Michael Jackson's career and life, it is a video that influenced fashion in the 80s. During the video we can see Jackson sporting his "trademark" red jacket along with matching red trousers, white socks, and black shoes.


Call it the "Michael Jackson Effect" or however you want to call it, but in months after his untimely passing, "The King of Pop" is influencing again fashion like he did 25 years ago with some designers releasing jackets and clothes that remind us of his outfits during the height of his career. Long Live The King, Michael Jackson...

I agree "Jeune_premier", that jacket is amazing...I believe Zara was selling it in September along with his military jackets!
