    During that Michael Jackson special the other night they showed some clips of one of his videos where he kind of takes his skin off and dances as a skeleton. It looked cool but I have never seen it before. What video/song is it for?

    The piece is called "Ghosts," a short film Jackson did in 1997. Stephen King contributed to the story and it was directed by special effects guru Stan Winston. I'm not aware of it having been released on videotape, and it certainly hasn't been released on DVD.

    Are you sure he didn't just peel of his nose
    and dance around as Mr. Potato head with missing

    I didn't see the special but I remember that in the video "Just leave me alone" there is a segment where he does what you described, tears his skin off and dances as a skeleton or maybe with one instead. I think he was dancing with the Elephant man or something. That's probably not what you were referring to, huh?

    I found the entire video online and downloaded it, it's 400 megs! I'm watching it now and it's very cool, they could of called it Thriller II. The makeup looks great on some of the people, especially the older guy.
    This really isn't availible on Video or DVD? Did it just air on TV or something? I can't believe I never heard of it.

    Yeah I knew it was Michael, I just didn't want to give it away. I really enjoyed watching the video and realizing it was him.
