The King of Pop’s legendary zombie music video gets Lego-fied!
2D animator, filmmaker, and comic artist Annette Jung of the Talking Animals Animation Studio in Berlin has recently recreated a stop-motion short animation using Lego bricks featuring a scene from the late Michael Jackson’s music video for the song “Thriller.”
This was Annette’s second Michael Jackson/Lego project, the first being the Lego Dance released earlier this year.
The John Landis-helmed “Thriller” was released in December 1983 and stars Michael opposite Ola Ray, with its now-famous monologue and sinister laughter at the end voiced by the late horror film actor Vincent Price.
With the screenplay co-written by Michael himself, it has the distinction of being the first music video to be inducted to The Library of Congress’ National Film Preservation Board in December 2009 – just a few months after Michael’s death.
Haven’t seen “Thriller” in its entirety yet or just want to feel a bit of that good ol’ ‘80s nostalgia? Why don’t we all spend the next 13 minutes watching “Thriller”!
