VIDEO VIRUS: Footage of Michael Jackson’s Hair Catching Fire In Pepsi Commerial

US Weekly unearthed some never-before-seen footage of the taping of that infamous Pepsi commercial when Michael Jackson‘s hair caught on fire on January 27, 1984.

The footage shows the King of Pop’s hair igniting from sparks that fell from a pyrotechnic explosion that was set off too early, and the visible burns left on the top of his head as the shaken singer as he is helped to his feet.

Jackson suffered second and third degree burns and it is now being speculated that the accident led to his addiction to painkillers.
