The story behind the video
5 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

Flattery Yukich Inc., one of the premier music video outfits of the 80s and 90s were asked to submit two ideas for this song. The big "gotcha" was that it had to be a concept that Michael had the option of being in or out. This idea was simple: Michael invites his celebrity friends to be in his next video - but he doesn't tell them anything more. People show up and essentially wait to be told what to do. Some assume they should sing to the track, others dance, the rest talk among themselves and wait. Finally he descends from up high on a camera crane and they realize that Michael has been secretly filming them all along. It was shot at the A&M (now Jim Henson) stage on La Brea Avenue in Hollywood over two days. Jackson's appearance was shot separately from the stars.
