Michael Jackson's Vision

Michael Jackson's Vision is a deluxe DVD box set released on November 22, 2010. It includes three DVDs, featuring 4.5 hours of content of 42 music videos by Michael Jackson, with newly restored color and remastered audio. Michael referred to each of these productions as a "short film" and not a music video.[1] According to a statement by the producers, the video recognizes Jackson's "pioneering short films that transformed the entertainment industry with timeless, pop culture classics". Michael Jackson's Vision includes the full-length versions of the John Landis-directed "Thriller" and "Black or White" as well as the classic "Bad" directed by Academy Award winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese. Also included in the boxed set are Michael’s collaborations with other noted film directors such as John Singleton, Spike Lee and David Fincher as well as "Ghosts", his rarely seen collaboration with special effects legend Stan Winston. Michael Jackson's Vision is available in a limited edition deluxe boxed set featuring a 60-page glossy hard-bound book that includes behind-the-scenes photos from Michael's personal archives. So far, this has been the last Michael Jackson DVD special to be released (unless there are plans for more Michael Jackson specials to be released on DVD in the future).[2]

Ten music videos previously unavailable on DVD including "One More Chance" are included.[1] It was also released on the iTunes Store and features iTunes LP features. The videos "Smooth Criminal", "Speed Demon", "Come Together", and "Leave Me Alone" come from Jackson's 1988 film Moonwalker. The "Smooth Criminal" segment is actually over 40 minutes long but only the 10 minute song and dance scene is featured. The video "Another Part of Me" is from Michael's Bad World Tour and "Will You Be There" is from the Dangerous World Tour.

The "HIStory" video is the only short film that is not included in this box set. The original music video of Blood On The Dance Floor is replaced with that of the Refugee Camp Mix. The reasons are unknown.

On February 15, 2011, "Michael Jackson's Vision" was certified 5x Platinum by RIAA for the sales of over 0.5 million units in the United States.[3] On 31 December 2010, it was also certified Diamond in France (for the sales of over 60 000 units)[4] and 2x Platinum in Australia.[5] On May 29, 2011, it was also certified Gold in New Zealand.[6] It has been also certified Gold in Austria[7] and Platinum in Poland.[8]

*Previously unreleased


Some music videos have been changed and are different from their previous commercial releases.

  • "Billie Jean"- unwanted specs such as a lighting bolt that pops up by Michael's feet during the dancing scene have been cleaned up.
  • "Bad" – is the full 18 minute version and the ending credits are included.
  • "The Way You Make Me Feel" – grunts and extra noises made by Michael can be heard.
  • "Smooth Criminal" – this is the 9 minute version as shown on HIStory on Film, Volume II.
  • "Speed Demon" - lines at the bottom of the screen that looks as if they are from a VHS are briefly seen at the end.
  • "Black or White" – is the original version without the racist graffiti added on to the car windows and shop door.
  • "In the Closet" – During the middle, a green flash occurs (Note: May be a manufacturing defect and does not appear on all editions).
  • "Jam" - You do not hear the "hoo" sound before Michael Jordan passes the ball to Michael Jackson.
  • "Heal the World" – has an added intro that can be seen on Dangerous – The Short Films.
  • "Who Is It"- has some parts of the instrumental rearranged compared to its previous release.
  • "Will You Be There" – a few seconds of the audio at the beginning is missing, and the ending is different to the one previously released, as there is no angel flying down to Michael, instead he sings on his own.
  • "Gone Too Soon" – is the version found on Michael Jackson's YouTube page and not the one previously released as seen on Dangerous – The Short Films.
  • "Scream" – the uncensored version with the word fucking and the middle finger kept in.
  • "You Are Not Alone" – is the version without scenes where Michael is naked with wings on his back.
  • "Earth Song" - Most of the sound effects are muted.
  • "Blood on the Dance Floor" – The Refugee Camp Remix version of the song is used, instead of the original.
  • "Ghosts" – is the five minute edit of the movie of the same name.
  • "You Rock My World" - Full 13 minute version is featured along with original credits.
  • "Can You Feel It" – includes the ending credits.
  • "They Don't Care About Us" (Prison version) – has a disclaimer at the beginning, plus different scenes than those of the first broadcast on TV.
