9. "Black or White" (1991)
Lions, Bart Simpson, Michael turning into a black panther, and Macaulay Culkin battling Norm from Cheers – "Black or White" was an explosive hodgepodge. Jackson's requests for production equipment were excessive. "Michael, why do you want all this?" said John Landis, who returned to the video director's chair for the first time since "Thriller." Jackson responded, "Well, maybe we'll get an idea." Jackson's crotch-grabbing, car-smashing dance moves caused a scandal, and the famous "morphing" sequence cost $100,000 and took a month. Landis says, "Now, of course, you can buy the software at Best Buy and do it on your laptop."
