Michael Jackson clowning around and fake-punching a scared-looking Mr. T

Nobody knows about the circumstances of the meeting between these two iconic personalities from the 80s, but it's certainly entertaining to look at the King of Pop and Mr. T clowning around for an interesting shot!

From the awesome archives of Awesome People Hanging out Together comes this pair of snaps proving that Michael Jackson and Mr. T (Laurence Tureaud in real life) once hung out and clowned around, even if just for some publicity shots. Both became pop culture icons during the 1980s, obviously with Jackson being hailed as the King of Pop, and Mr. T finding success as an actor and professional wrestler.

Nobody really knows the story behind the interesting meeting, but according to Wikipedia, Mr. T was once a bodyguard, and MJ was one of the famous personalities he protected.
