Here is an Entertainment Weekly exclusive about the fire video.
Pepsi seems pissed.-Dr.FB
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
Just a couple of question for you guys to discuss:
How did that video get released?
Who released it?
Why wasn't this released back in 1984?
Did you know Michael Jackson settled this quickly for 1.5 Million and gave the money to charity?
Did you know Michael could have taken Pepsi to the cleaners for this but did not?
Was this the beginning of the end for MJ?
How sad is this video?
Wasn't this injury downplayed by the media back then and recently?
PLEASE share your thoughts. Thank you.-Dr.FB
Let me just explain a few reasons why I am posting this. I had to think long and hard about it. I don't know how it got released but 25 years later, it did.
A lot of you remember that day when Michael Jackson's hair caught on fire. You remember that shot of him in the ambulance waving with the white glove to the cameras and fans. We all heard how bad it was. It's worse. You see the hair catch on fire but it doesn't seem like Michael knows yet. He did not tumble to the floor like in the "American Dream" movie. You see the Brando kid there trying to put his hair out after the extinguisher. You then see a HUGE burn mark where his hair used to be.
This is where we are told he started getting addicted to pain killers because of how bad the burn is. This. Is. Sad. I am posting this after a while of looking at it and being shocked. I know I am going to get shhh from some of you about this and I apologize ahead of time. I felt the need to post it because it is historical and it let's us know this was a very serious burn.
Please be warned, the video is graghic.-Dr.FB
Lady GaGa has got your crazy! Why the hell are her boobs on fire? She really needs to be careful or we may just have a repeat of the Michael Jackson Pepsi Commercial burn......
Jay Leno is proving once again he is the nicest man in Hollywood. He has added a second show at the Palace in Auburn Hills in Detroit, Mi.
Domino's Pizza passed out free pizza to those in line and Pepsi will be hooking up everyone in attendance at both shows with free drinks and we here Doritos will be getting involved to give everyone a bag of chips as well.
Jay offered the free show for those unemployed and out of work but opened it up to anyone who is on hard times in the city of Detroit.
Scum have already started selling tickets on ebay and craiglist and Leno pleaded with Ebay to take those tickets for sale down.
It's guys like Jay that make think maybe I don't have to go down that road of being a dirty celeb blogger. Better stories. Positive attention. Time will tell.
Jay Leno is the man. Period.-Dr.FB
