Things have been insane. So you’ll just have to wait for part two of my Temple of Doom Retrospective. Sorry.
In the meantime, though, enjoy a little taste of Thriller. This was the first album I ever bought, and it was Vinyl. In fact, I still have it. I’ll never forget going over to K-Mart and purchasing it with left-over potholder money.
Anyway, it was cool then, and it is flippin’ sweet, now.
A bit of trivia for you:
The video was released in 1983 at a cost of $500,000, five times what an average video cost at that time.
Jonathan Landis, of American Werewolf in London fame directed.
Special effects guru, Rick Baker, did the f/x.
This was a landmark video and had a brief theatrical run in order to qualify for an Academy Award.
