The OG Super Bowl performance is cranking on YouTube following this year’s s**tshow
It’s no secret that this year’s Super Bowl half-time show sucked a fat one. Everyone’s been talking about it and sharing their disappointment with Maroon 5 and Travis Scott’s live show, and the whole thing has been blasted as ‘the worst Super Bowl half-time show ever’. In the midst of this, it seems that people have decided they need to be reminded what a top notch half-time show looks like. As a result, Wacko Jacko’s star turn at the 1993 Super Bowl has been cranking on YouTube.
There’s a pretty bloody good reason for the wild success of this legendary performance. It was f**ken s**t-hot. It also came the year after another infamously bad one. Deadset, the year before the King of Pop took to the stage at the NFL’s biggest event, they had all sorts of weird early 90s s**t going on: dudes in stilts waving to the camera, kids in MC Hammer pants rapping about Frosty the Snowman and tonnes more mundane crap.
So Jackson was bound to turn some f**ken heads. In true Wacko Jacko fashion, it’s reported that he didn’t really even know what the Super Bowl was. The show’s executive producer claims Michael asked, “Why don’t we just call it the Thriller Bowl?”
Imagine it: all squeaky voice and good manners, just throwing his two cents in before calmly accepting the outcome. Despite that, he still rocked the f**k out of the joint. A medley of Billie Jean, We Are The World and Black Or White got the crowd pumping before he finished off with Heal The World. Talk about a bloody set-list. No wonder Maroon 5’s vanilla-as-fuck songs couldn’t compete. Of course, these were more naïve times, and they even let a whole bunch of kids on-stage with Wacko as he closed out his set.
Anyway, have a f**ken squiz at the video down below and just look at the presence this man had on the stage. Say what you will about the shemozzle that went on for the last decade or so of his life, but the man had some bloody tunes. The mother**ker could move too. The pelvic thrusts, the hat-thing, the choreography! Holy smokes, he was the real bloody deal, this fella. Watch this and enjoy the s**t out of it. We really won’t see his like again.
Final thought: This is the thing with all the talk about the recent Super Bowl’s half-time show. Who really cares? If it wasn’t good, let it be relegated to the pages of history. Stuff like this Michael Jackson performance is bloody timeless. Rock the b**tard and enjoy some proper half-time entertainment.
