We all know this photo of Michael Jackson with John Landis at Disneyworld in 1984. After the death of Michael, the director of Thriller told in an interview, what really happened that day. "After Thriller, we went to Disney World and I have in my library this photo that I really like, a really ridiculous photo of Michael Jackson, Mickey and me.
The photographer had taken just two pictures that I heard a deafening noise. I saw the type of security arrive and talk in his microphone. I turned around and I do not know how to explain it, but it was the only time in my life that I was really terrified. I thought, 'We are dead'. There was a sea of people who had completely encircled the island of grass where we were, only held by a small chain. Wherever I look, in all directions, there was this sea of people. There were thousands of people, all hysterical. The kind of hysterics we saw for the Beatles, Elvis, Sinatra. They were hysterical because Michael Jackson was there. I thought 'Oh my God' The screams were getting louder, we had to scream to be heard by the person next door.
At Disneyland and Disneyworld, the characters in costumes are not allowed to speak, but Mickey looked at me and said, 'Oh M ......!' I do not know how long it lasted, but suddenly, coming out of nowhere, a Cadillac limousine arrived. I'll never forget it, I do not know how it happened, but 'ffuitt' was Disney magic. The security agents grabbed Michael, Mickey, and me and threw us into the car, with Mickey's giant head, slammed the doors, broke the chains, and we found ourselves in the middle of that ocean it was like surfing! A wall of people surrounded the car, you know, as in the Sorcerer's Apprentice. While Mickey and I were knocking ourselves out, the driver said, 'I do not know what to do'. I said to him, 'Do not go ahead, you could kill someone!' And meanwhile, Michael was beckoning to them saying 'Hello ... Hello', completely disconnected! "
