The coolest music video in history!!
4 August 2002 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

I have seen the video Thriller a million times and heard it a million times, I'm still not sick of it! I knew the dances since I could crawl. And let's face it, Michael maybe weird, but he his the KING OF POP!!! And probaly the KING OF DANCE!!! He is so awesome. And this music video was a big break through that would define the way we look at music videos. To John Landis, YOU RULE!!! And Michael, you are the best!

10/10

P.S. GET THIS VIDEO! YOU WON'T REGRET IT!
