There's some wicked dancing in this video and the overblown excess of it is something else to behold but, ultimately, it's a testimony to the vision of one of the 20th century's most successful musicians.

When Jackson's death was announced it occurred to me that for many this meant he could be remembered for his work rather than the later controversies. At that time I was thinking more of the following though and up until recently it had also been Thriller -- and this is a cute version -- but Ghosts outdoes that and one wonders if that wasn't the intent.

The miming is ordinary but that's another great step for modern dance.
