Footage Of Michael Jackson’s Hair Catching Fire During Pepsi Commercial

Videos

Michael Jackson’s celebrity status followed him everywhere he went, even after he suffered serious burns to his scalp, while filming a Pepsi commercial on January 27, 1984.

“I remember enjoying the ride to the hospital because I never thought I’d ride in an ambulance with the sirens wailing,” Michael Jackson said. “It was one of those things I had always wanted to do when I was growing up. When we got there, they told me there were news crews outside, so I asked for my glove. There’s a famous shot of me waving from the stretcher with my glove on.”
