Thriller Fun Fact #1:
Michael Jackson, a Jehovah’s Witness, ALMOST ordered the Thriller video footage to be destroyed when he found out that the religious group disapproved of its subject matter (werewolves, the undead etc).
Luckily, he came around when the producers added a disclaimer to the beginning of the video which states: “Due to my strong personal convictions, I wish to stress that this film in no way endorses a belief in the occult.”
And in case you didn’t know, we’re playing the album Thriller this Thursday in San Francisco and Saturday in Santa Cruz. That’s Fun Fact #2.
