Black or White


My all-time favorite Michael Jackson video is "Black or White." I especially love watching the faces morphing at the end. Macaulay Culkin, Tyra Banks, and others are featured in it. The video isn't normally aired beyond the face-morphing scene, but this version is the complete 11-minute mini-movie that shows M.J. himself morphing into a black panther at the very end.

More morphing videos.
