Michael Jackson on fire!

Posted by Tricia Dunn - email

(WFLX) - There is never-before-seen footage of Michael Jackson's Pepsi commercial accident back in 1984.

The performance took place in front of three thousand fans, on the sixth take things went horribly wrong. The pyrotechnics went off too early, and you can see Jackson's head ignite in flames.

 At first he's unaware and keeps on dancing, then you see people try to put out the fire. Jackson suffered second and third degree burns on his scalp and body.

US Weekly reports he was prescribed several medications, which kicked off his addiction to pain killer, and his obsession with plastic surgery.
