Michael Jackson’s Thriller – A Remake in St. John’s Newfoundland

07 Jul, 2009

Last year my friends Phil and Ashley approached me about starring in their Thriller video redux. When they told me their plan I loved it. When they told me they wanted me to be Michael Jackson, I loved it even more.

The idea was to present it as a gift for our friends at “The House” who host an incredible democratically-themed Halloween Party every year that is like no other. They decorate their entire house at great expense and there is a spooky dance floor.

For an entire month we planned, choreographed, and filmed this video without any of our friends at the house having an inkling of our project. They got the greatest suprise of their… umm, Halloween I guess.

I would like to thank everyone that was involved, especially those who took time away from their exams (when others more appropriately prioritized) and helped us out with this film.
