VIDEO: Michael Jackson’s Hair on Fire

Remember when Michael Jackson’s hair famously caught fire while filming a Pepsi commercial?

Even if you don’t, US Weekly has the video from 1984, where Jackson’s hair exploded in flames after a pyrotechnic effect went horribly wrong.

Michael’s resulting injury from that harrowing accident is reportedly what started his addiction to painkillers.

In the video, Jackson performs several takes. During the sixth take, the pyrotechnics go off early, setting his hair ablaze. Jackson doesn’t seem to notice, continuing to dance and spin, until crew members spray him in the face with a fire extinguisher.
