Report: Michael Jackson Wanted Burn Video Released Immediately!



We are learning just hours after Michael Jackson was burned back in 1984, he was wanting the video footage of the incident out.

Larry said "I was backstage when the accident happened. People were screaming "Michael is on fire" and I saw the footage for the first time yesterday. The wound was deep. At least an 8th of an inch.

Larry Larson, The Victory Tour producer, was backstage when this commercial was being shot and was with Michael Jackson when he was in the hospital. There was a press conference held in front of the hospital and Michael advised Larry that the video will be put into the media's hands as he wants it out there.

Pepsi got a hold of it and said it was their video, their crew and they REFUSED to release it.  Larry wants to know where that footage came from.

Larry did say the gel he used on his hair that day did say do not use near flammable material.

The question still remains: how did this video get out now? If we would have seen the footage back then, there would not have been so many jokes over something so serious.-Dr.FB

  1. P.S. I forgot to call out Pepsi (lol). Yeah, big companies and money… they go hand in hand. It’s not just big companies out to get money, but you hardly come across a corporation that isn’t about money first rather than sympathy or sincerity.

    Root of all evil? Believe that.

  2. I have to say that even without the video being released back in ’84 there never was excuse for jokes about the incident. Regardless of seeing the footage then (which we all have now recently seen) it was made known that the man’s head was burned. We saw the footage of him being taken out on a stretcher with his head wrapped up. The picture that’s posted here has been seen for years. So the seriousness of this accident was well known. How serious it was taken or treated is another story. It’s really a shame that people wait until someone passes away before they look back and sympathize with parts of their life that they should have paid attention to or showed remorse for while they were living.

  3. I agree with the comment that it was a liability issue for Pepsi … Pepsi probably witheld the video because they knew Michael has millions of fans that would have boycotted all Pepsi products — they knew a lawsuit was comming — so of course Pepsi didn’t want the tape out back then & to put it out now in 2009 shortly after Michael’s death …. somebody got paid — I don’t know if Pepsi put the video out or the producers of the commercial but it’s all about profit $$$$$$$

  4. Thats just awful. I’ll remember that when I reach for a Pepsi, which I wont from know on, or any of their other products.

    TMZ also reported that the director has avoided talking and/or apparently responsibility over the incident. There was a fire captain on the set also that overheard the director directing MJ to stay there to make the scene more exciting. Irresponsible and Pepsi is not without fault here.

    Im tired of this big companies using artists then not helping them or supporting them and treating them like crap after THEIR negligence affects the artist in such a way. I think AEG today, may also has a hand in the death of MJ as the doctor was chosen by them as an employee of there’s. Somethings up in that arena too.

  5. It was a liability issue…of course Pepsi didn’t want it released..sympathy from the general public would have led to a higher payout for MJ…I”m sure the lawyers told them to seize that tape immediately…GREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED

  6. @WTF — the picture’s not new. it’s been floating ’round the net for a while.

    and…i think i have a bio of Mike from years ago that has a picture of it.

  7. How in the hell did you get that photo?
