I still remember when the Thriller video got its TV premier.
It was such a big deal. Like, really a big deal.
It didn’t fall short either. The hype was worthy.
But how, in these days of media saturation, overnight celebrity and more brand launches in a week than you used to get in a year, could someone replicate the buzz, the anticipation and the execution of something like the Thriller video?
When you can go online and literally see ANYthing, from real human executions to skateboarding dogs, is it ever possible to have something truly massive, momentous and awe inspiring in pop culture in this millennium?
No matter what I can think of, regardless of how far I allow my mind to stretch as to what someone could try to do to blow my mind, I keep thinking ‘meh’.
