Change the world Tomorrow...
28 June 2003 | by See all my reviews

Michael had changed a lot from the time of thriller to this video...his skin was lighter and his features seemed to have changed...but who cares, Bad is still awesome and directed by Martin Scorsese! the song is really catchy and Michael's dancing is very tough and sharp, Wesley snipes makes an appearance also...10/10 Michael delivered the goods with this
