did michael jackson really burn his hair in that notorious pepsi commercial? i don’t think so.
we’ve all seen the pictures of michael jackson on a stretcher with his head bandaged following what seemed like a horrible burn accident while filming a pepsi commercial back in 1984. why is it that i’m the only one smart enough to see that it was all a hoax? here’s my proof:
first, look at these pictures of jackson shortly before the accident.
notice anything in all three pictures? notice the corners developing on the sides of his forehead? notice the balding that has begun? he’s losing his hair, so he’s taking pieces of the remaining hairline and greasing the hairs on his skin to cover up the bald spot.
then comes the alleged accident. watch and notice two things. first, at no time do you see jackson before he decends the stairs, so we can’t really be sure it’s him. next, notice his clothes weren’t on fire. you see someone standing, back to the camera, then the video goes completely white, then the dancer’s hair is on fire. go ahead and watch…
as i said, you don’t really see if it’s jackson until he pops up, so we can’t be sure that was him going down the stairs. after that, we saw pictures of jackson on a stretcher with his head bandaged.
back then, people who had hair transplant surgery had to wear bandages around their heads to cover the scabs and bleeding following the surgery. today, the technology is better, but not then. jackson, who was so freaky about his appearance, was ultra freaky about his hair. losing it was the biggest obstacle for his “forever young” attitude. he couldn’t walk around with bandages or the surgery would be obvious. he needed an explanation, so he came up with the fake fire accident.
not convinced? look at these pictures of him in the years after the accident. look how much better his hair looks, how thick, how straight. that’s because it wasn’t his hair but the hair from the transplant surgery.
looks pretty clear to me.
