Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” is an epic 13-minute short mini-movie (video) released December 2, 1983 that changed the game for music videos.

It was MTV’s first world premiere video. The video was also voted as the most influential pop music video of all time.

Guinness World Records had “Thriller” listed it in 2006 as the “most successful music video”, selling over nine million copies.  In 2009, the video was inducted into the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress, the first music video to ever receive this honor, for being “culturally, or aesthetically” significant.   It is also the most watched music video of all time, seen by more than four billion people all over the world.

Co-starring with Jackson in the video was former Playboy centerfold Ola Ray.   Ola Ray is trying to release music these days.
