Michael Jackson made history again last night (August 13) when his “A Place With No Name” video became the first to premiere on Twitter. Directed by Samuel Bayer, the choreography-heavy visual for Xscape‘s official second single is comprised of behind-the-scenes/unused footage from 1992′s “In The Closet”, archival clips of MJ and new dance scenes staged in the desert.
The finished result is a pleasant burst of nostalgia but if you’re looking for more than a lovingly-curated walk down memory lane, “A Place With No Name” falls short. The black-and-white scenes at the beginning of the video blend nicely with the unearthed footage but the second half is a little sloppy. If only Michael were still here to exert quality control. Find a link to the history-making opus after the jump.
