Ummm… OUCH!

Unseen footage of Michael Jackson catching on fire filming a commercial for Pepsi in 1984 has been released.

What you see is the pyrotechnics going off too early, setting his hair on fire. Jackson continues to perform unaware of the fire burning on the top of his head, until smoke starts to billow around him.

Seconds later, stage hands run to him and put out the fire, creating a bald spot and leaving 2nd & 3rd degree burns on his face and scalp.

Poor guy…
