One word- Legendary
4 December 2002 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Black or White has to be one of the most exciting videos i've ever seen. The dancing, the singing, the morphing, it's all incredible. It starts of with the famous scene where Macaulay Culkin plugs his electric guitar into an over-sized amplifier, blasting his dad out of the room and into another place. Then we see Michael Jackson dancing in several scenes, finely enough. But then comes the controversial ending wich sparked outrage when this video first aired in November 1991. We see a panther morph into Michael Jackson and then vandalising property, including breaking a car window with a cro-bar. Even so, it is still a fun and exciting video.

P.S. I don't know what video George Litman was watching, but there is no scene where Michael Jackson "masturbates" on top of a car!!! If touching your crotch means masturbating, then all men masturbate whenever they visit the gents.
