Musical Interlude: Smooth Criminal (1987-8)

 It wasn't too long ago we served up Alien Ant Farm's remake of Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal". Now, here's the original.

Jackson, who wrote "Criminal", found inspiration for the video in Fred Astaire's dancing in the 1953 film, "The Band Wagon". Joe Pesci ("Goodfellas", "Lethal Weapon") co-starred in the full length video which was the centerpiece for the subsequent "Moonwalker" video compilation. Look quick, and you'll find John Lennon's son, Sean, in a cameo.
