Michael Jackson is a great demonstration of the Uncanny Valley. I find him more creepy from this era than he is now. Now he's so perversely deformed he's like a cute* alien or something. Here he looks almost normal but something is just off, and it makes me really uncomfortable.
Mecha-Jackson is awesome, and bears a slight resemblance to that blind girls bust of Lionel Richie from that one video.
You just watched Michael Jackson thematically reliving the abuse his father dished out to himself and his siblings. It's rather sad to see all of Michael's career through the lens of his abusive childhood, fame, and intense work schedule.
