Retro Friday: The Jacksons Edition
Tripiest video ever from the Jacksons/Jackson Five? From 1980, it's almost like the director of this video to "Can You Feel It" had just seen a screening of "Xanadu"... or had been freebasing in front of an Earth, Wind and Fire LP.
Actually, according to Wikipedia, the video was directed by Bruce Gowers and Robert Abel, and was even voted one of the 100 best videos of all time, in a 2001 United Kingdom poll to mark the 20th anniversary of MTV. (Gowers, who also directed Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody," is now the director of "American Idol's" live episodes.) Check it out.
