Video: Michael's Jackson's Pepsi Commercial Fire Accident

An eerie video has just been released from the set of a Pepsi commercial Michael Jackson shot in 1984. For the shoot, Michael performed on stage at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles in front of 3000 fans.

The shoot involved pyrotechnics on the stage, and one of them went off too early, causing Michael’s hair to catch on fire. He ran off the stage, and was surrounded immediately by security, trying to stamp the fire out.

Michael suffered second and third-degree burns on his face and scalp. Many are speculating that this could have been the beginning of Michael’s long addiction to painkillers.

Check out the video below.
