Michael Jackson's "Ghosts" (1997) (part 3 of 3)

Back in ’93, when Michael seemed merely eccentric in a Howard Hughes kind of way, “Ghosts” probably would have played better, or at least not utterly horrifying. But given what he’s been accused of since then, it’s hard to sympathize with him in this video. After all, we learn his character is inviting young boys to his hideaway, and exacting promises from them to keep quiet about what goes on there. Amazingly, this whole “film” is all about why sane adults should not freak out about this.
