Entertainment and celebrity news magazine Us Weekly has released footage of a Michael Jackson commercial shoot for Pepsi gone wrong.
In the clip from 1984, during the sixth take of the commercial–which was filmed before a live audience filled with 3,000 Jackson fans, the singer’s hair catches fire after a pyrotechnics element goes off too early.
Jackson continues dancing as he decends onto the stage. Crew members rush to Jackson to extinguish the flames.
The King of Pop suffered second- and third-degree burns on his scalp and face. The magazine also claims that in order to deal with the pain of the accident Jackson began taking medications–leading to the star’s alleged addiction to painkillers and plastic surgery.
