"Billie Jean" and "Thriller" were two of the biggest videos of 1983 and both from the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson. Both videos featured Jackson, darkly lit streets and, well, the similarities kind of end there. Billie Jean's dance moves and Thriller's big budget both got MTV audiences talking 40 years ago. But nowadays, do the videos hold up as well as the songs do? Would zombies really dance the way they do in Thriller? And, in Billie Jean, why does MJ look like he wants to talk to the manager? The Old Roommates go giggling past the music video graveyard and give it all a rewatch. Listen to this.
