1991: Michael Jackson's music video "Black or White" premieres on MTV, BET, VH-1 and Fox. Along with Jackson, it featured Macaulay Culkin, Tess Harper and George Wendt. The video, which was directed by John Landis, who previously directed "Thriller," was shown simultaneously in 27 countries with an audience of 500 million, the most to ever watch a music video. The last four minutes of the video, which featured Jackson performing sexually suggestive dance moves, smashing windows, destroying a car and making an inn explode, generated some controversy and led to an apology from the singer and an altered version in which Jackson is destroying racial graffiti messages on windows.
