    THE SHORT FILM
    Director: Colin Chilvers
    Primary Production Location: Los Angeles, California

    Michael Jackson's short film for ""Smooth Criminal"" was the sixth of nine short films produced for recordings from Bad, one of the best selling albums of all time. The ""Smooth Criminal"" single hit No. 1 in Spain and The Netherlands and reached the Top 10 in the UnitedStates, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Ireland and Switzerland. In the United States, ""Smooth Criminal"" reached the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100-the sixth single from Bad to do so-as well as Billboard's Hot Dance Club Play and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles charts.

    In addition to being a standalone short film, ""Smooth Criminal"" became the centerpiece of Michael's most ambitious film project at the time, Moonwalker, a feature-length film that was released theatrically in various countries outside of the United States. In the ""Smooth Criminal"" portion of the film, Michael and his friends face off against the notorious drug lord Mr. Big (Joe Pesci) and attempt to foil his plot to get the children of the world hooked on drugs-but of course, in the end, Michael defeats the villain.

    The musical portion of ""Smooth Criminal"" takes place in the magical ""Club '30s,"" where Michael instructed his friends to meet him. While Katie (Kellie Parker), Zeke (Brandon Adams) and Sean (Sean Lennon) find the club to belong abandoned, Club '30s springs to life when Michael shows up, wearing a blue and white pinstripe suit and fedora.

    As the kids watch through the window, Michael flips a coin into the jukebox and leads the club patrons through a dazzling performance to ""Smooth Criminal."" Here, Michael shows off updated versions of his signature dance moves. He also debuts one of his most iconic dance moves: the ""anti-gravity lean,"" a seemingly impossible move.

    As he came into the window
    It was the sound of a crescendo
    He came into her apartment
    He left the bloodstains on the carpet
    She ran underneath the table
    He could see she was unable
    So she ran into the bedroom
    She was struck down, it was her doom

    Annie, are you ok?
    So, Annie are you ok
    Are you ok, Annie
    Annie, are you ok?
    So, Annie are you ok
    Are you ok, Annie
    Annie, are you ok?
    So, Annie are you ok?
    Are you ok, Annie?
    Annie, are you ok?
    So, Annie are you ok, are you ok Annie?

    Annie, are you ok?
    So, Annie are you ok?
    Are you ok, Annie?
    Annie, are you ok?
    So, Annie are you ok?
    Are you ok, Annie?
    Annie, are you ok?
    So, Annie are you ok?
    Are you ok, Annie?
    You've been hit by
    You've been hit by
    A smooth criminal

    So they came into the outway
    It was Sunday, what a black day
    Mouth to mouth
    Resuscitation
    Sounding heartbeats, intimidation

    Annie, are you ok?
    So, Annie are you ok
    Are you ok, Annie
    Annie, are you ok?
    So, Annie are you ok
    Are you ok, Annie
    Annie, are you ok?
    So, Annie are you ok?
    Are you ok, Annie?
    Annie, are you ok?
    So, Annie are you ok, are you ok Annie?

    (You've been struck by
    A smooth criminal)

    Okay, I want everybody to clear
    The area right now!

    I don't know!
    (Will you tell us that you're ok?)
    I don't know!
    (There's a sign in the window)
    I don't know!
    (That he struck you, a crescendo Annie)
    I don't know!
    (He came into your apartment)
    I don't know!
    (Left the bloodstains on the carpet)
    I don't know why baby!
    (Then you ran into the bedroom)
    I don't know
    (You were struck down)
    (It was your doom - Annie!)

    Dag gone it, baby!
    (Will you tell us that you're ok?)
    Dag gone it, baby!
    (There's a sign in the window)
    Dag gone it, baby!
    (That he struck you, a crescendo Annie)
    (He came into your apartment)
    Dag gone it!
    (Left the bloodstains on the carpet)
    (Then you ran into the bedroom)
    (You were struck down)
    Dag gone it!
    (It was your doom, Annie!)

    I swear Michael Jackson was on different lvl with moving his legs. It looks like he actually dancing with both his feet floating about 1cm from the ground.
