Debbie Lee Carrington,
The song was originally intended to be a duet between Jackson and Prince. Prince would have played Wesley Snipes's character in the video. According to Prince, he was uncomfortable with the opening line "Your butt is mine" and turned the song down. See more »

This music video is honestly one of the best of Michael Jackson. He portrays a high school kid coming home from a high class, preppy school only to hang out with his ghetto friends. As the group gets back into their old ways, Michael refuses to continue with them. His opinions have changed since they last hung out and doesn't want to be the delinquent that he apparently was before hand.
After his friends give him one more chance to show that he still is BAD, Michael ditches the chance and tells his friends that they're nothing and not bad either. He goes into a lengthy dance number to show to them that he is BAD too, but just not in the way that they want him to be.
The direction and quality of film is excellent. With it's WIZARD OF OZ type feel, by having the film start off in Black and White and then at the point of the song's entrance, turning to color, only to go back to Black and White after the song's finished.
Once again, this is one of MJ's better MUSIC VIDEOS and is a must see for fans of both MJ and Scoresce.
