Goofs

When Michael is dancing with the lady in the middle of the street, he holds a sheet from a newspaper. He then scrunches it into a ball and throws it away. It blows away, but then the newspaper suddenly appears right by his foot again, and is now flat and intact. Then in the next shot it has vanished again. See more »

Alternate Versions

After receiving many angry phone calls and letters of protest, the later showings of this video removed the scene where Micheal Jackson smashes a car with a crowbar, smashes a window by throwing a garbage can at it, and grabs his crotch while dancing. See more »
