Let’s all take a minute to remember Michael Jackson’s classic 1984 Pepsi commercial YouTube/Screenshot

In 1984, Michael Jackson filmed a Pepsi commercial that we can all still appreciate today.

The commercial is full of dancing and singing and sparkly gloves, but behind the scenes, something absolutely terrifying happened.

An explosion on set caused Jackson’s hair to catch on fire, resulting in the hospitalization of the popstar for treatment of third degree burns.

He obviously made a full recovery and despite the trauma on set, it’s still one of our favorites.
