Michael Jackson: "Black or White"
Vasquez Rocks


Vasquez Rocks scene (all of it) from Michael Jackson's 1991 short film, "Black or White," directed by John Landis; followed by (entire) Vasquez Rocks excerpt from "The Making of Black or White."

Don't call it a music video: "Black or White," made in September 1991, was one of nine short films from Jackson's eighth studio album, "Dangerous," released by Epic Records on November 26, 1991. "Black or White" was released as a single November 11, 1991. The full-length short film premiered simultaneously in 28 countries that same month.

Written and produced by Jackson and Bill Bottrell, "Black or White" shot to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in just three weeks and stayed there for 7 weeks. It also hit No. 1 in 19 other countries.

The video opens with George Wendt scolding his son (McCauley Culkin) for playing loud music. Culkin plugs a guitar into an enormous speaker and blasts his father out of the house and clear around the world. Also appearing are Tyra Banks ("Coyote Ugly"), Nancy Cartwright and Dan Castellaneta (voices of Bart and Homer Simpson), and dancer Ernie Whitecloud (Jemez), among others.
