'Thriller' Changed Music Videos
The 14-minute video for the album's title track changed the way we view music videos.
"It was so epic," Yahoo! Music reporter Billy Johnson Jr. told ABCNews.com. "We had never seen anything like that: a mini movie with a horror theme. For it to still be regarded as one of the best music videos 30 years later just shows you how far ahead of the game he was at that time."
The video was also one of the first made by a major film director, John Landis, who directed "The Blues Brothers" and "An American Werewolf in London."
