On weekends in the '80s I would have the television in the den on MTV. I remember specifically seeing this concert footage of Michael Jackson touring in Europe. I was as mesmerized as the fans at the concert! I have to give Dad credit, I don't recall him ever saying "Turn that off." Nothing negative anyway. He sat in his chair and read the paper or was getting the grill going. Plus, everyone knew how much I loved MJ! After I'd get my fix, and probably about the time a sports game was coming on TV, I'd give over the remote.
Another time, I rented the Making of Thriller (the video short movie) VHS tapes and watched it at least a couple of times one weekend. Turns out the Making Of concept was new too. Enjoy the snippet.
