Nifty Halloween YouTube Thing: Thriller

We finally arrive at October 31, and what better way to celebrate than with the best music video – indeed, one of the best short films – ever made? Michael Jackson spent the rest of his career hoping to recapture that lightning, making his videos bigger and bigger, yet Thriller is such pop perfection, working as an encapsulation of all things early-80s and yet timeless, too, a funky celebration of bumping in the night (in all that phrase’s possible meanings, ahem) that can never grow old. It’s such a singular achievement, it can never be matched, just admired.

Happy Halloween, everybody!
