I prefer the prison version over the Brazilian because the video just suits the song perfectly :yes:
What do you think the best version is and why?
05-02-2008, 11:53 AM
I love both but the Brazilian version a tad more because it's just the large scale atmosphere- I love it! And gosh, the DRUMS!!!
I wanna go to that jail. :punk:

I prefer the prison version
05-02-2008, 06:44 PM
I like both, but think that the Brasilian is better because Michael is so good on that... thats him, live... and everybody crazy about him!!! Its really cool!!!

I really like the concept of the Brazilian version, but the prison video is too daring not to be more intriguing. Typically, the one they don't let you see is the one that's more alluring ;).
Plus, it's an angry song, and the prison video is definitely angrier.

the Brazilian version ;)
06-02-2008, 04:41 AM
Prison version is my favorite
06-02-2008, 07:24 AM
depends on my mood....Prison version is more intense and brazilian is more chilled out and fun; specially the end where I always smile at MJ's gestures and stuff.
Overall, I think prison version though.
06-02-2008, 04:31 PM
Personally, I love a Brazilian so that wins for me.
06-02-2008, 04:53 PM
The Brazilian version is better IMO. ;)
06-02-2008, 07:01 PM
I prefer the prison version, so my vote goes for that :)
06-02-2008, 07:03 PM
I like the prison version better! It's so powerful!
06-02-2008, 07:18 PM
I prefer brazil version coz of the atmosphere. the interaction between mj and the ppl around, its spontaneous and plus the drums at the end!
but I also like the jail version coz its sorta 'in your face!' lol. its powerful and great in that way.

I would say the prison version. Much more graphic and to the point of the course "All i wanna say is that they don't really care about us"
He jus lays it all down with the holocaust, mistreatment to blacks and other
08-02-2008, 02:53 AM
the prison version is definitely my favorite
it's so raw and powerful and emotional.
the brazil version is great too.
i heard Mike was never happy with the Brazil version though.
08-02-2008, 03:59 AM
I like the Brazilian version because of the percussion. Odolum should've played on the album version IMO.
08-02-2008, 04:05 AM
The prison version is kind of depressing...lol Its too much to take in. I'm with the Brazil :)
08-02-2008, 06:27 PM
The Brazilian version.It's the video that made me a fan! :D
09-02-2008, 12:07 AM
Prison version, it's powerful, has the effect it should have, and the video is relevant to the song lyrics...
09-02-2008, 07:23 AM
I hafta say brazilian, I love those drums :wub:
13-02-2008, 09:59 PM
Tough one but i'm going for Prison Version
13-02-2008, 10:08 PM
prison! its the original, its way more intense + mike looks unresistable

i'd prefer prison version better, cause it kinda does suit the song lol :)
14-02-2008, 05:35 PM
I totally agree with StephluvsMJ--the prison video just fits the song perfectly!
14-02-2008, 07:24 PM
Brazilian version, that one is awesome:D
08-07-2008, 05:43 AM
i like the prison version cause there's more of a story line, to coinside with the lyrics to the song
08-07-2008, 11:03 AM
I like both of them, but I voted for the prison version. When I saw that for the first time, I thought that Mike was in trouble now. They were going to hurt him, cause he has gone too far. He has messed with the establishment and they are going to mae him pay. That was a very daring video. I just loved it. pity they banned it. So much for freedom of expression.
08-07-2008, 11:37 AM
i have to say the Brazilian version :D
08-07-2008, 12:08 PM
I like prison version more than Brazilian :)
08-07-2008, 11:48 PM
i loove them booth very much but i'll have to go with the prisoned version!
i mean thats just i side we never saw from michael and it was so raaw you know the first time i saw it i was like, woow dont want to be in the same prison as he.. lol:D
U know the brazil version makes more sence but the Brazil version has more dancing in it.. so!! hard

i just rewatched both of them and ill have to go with the prison version although not by a large margin
09-07-2008, 05:02 PM
Brazil! I love the prison one but the brazil has a more natural MJ around all the people, so that's where my vote goes.
09-07-2008, 05:42 PM
I voted for the Brazilian version because I love the drums!!!
09-07-2008, 06:58 PM
gee WHAT a HARD question! i had such hard time, deciding!!!! lol
at last i picked "prision version" but i do love both. :wub:
09-07-2008, 11:30 PM
Prison version is extremly powerful.. definately that one
12-07-2008, 05:16 PM
Wow this is really close.
I chose Brazilian version.
13-07-2008, 02:40 AM
I'd say the Prison version because it has a more powerful message.
13-07-2008, 08:59 AM
prison version's much better.
i used to scream like crazy each time i saw it came on MTV and i waited so hard for it.
13-07-2008, 12:17 PM
I vote the prison version:punk:
13-07-2008, 07:34 PM
i say the brazilian version, it was the first one made and the drums give the ending a whole new sound
The final part is awesome...
14-07-2008, 06:04 AM
It is powerful....
15-07-2008, 05:43 AM
Brazil version. Beautiful choreography, cinematography and good direction.
15-07-2008, 05:59 AM
Prison for sure. Though, MJ don't look good in cuffs >_>
15-07-2008, 07:28 AM
I voted for the prison version. I love the Brazilian version, but the prison version is, to me, much more powerful and moving. it helps really drive home the message of the song.
17-07-2008, 11:59 PM
I love both videos but....the prison version it's the nearest to the meaning of the song....
and I love Mike when he dancs on the table.....
18-07-2008, 12:54 PM
I love both but I voted the brazilian version 'cos Michael too damn hot in that.
20-07-2008, 04:52 AM
Fu*k it why not BOTH?!?!

the prison version for me cause i love the way the images were used in the background of michael's cell, it is such a powerful video to match the songs nature.
I like the Brazilian version more:)
02-09-2008, 01:54 AM
I prefer the Brazilian version because I love the drums :)
02-09-2008, 01:56 AM
the brazilian version is the best for me
02-09-2008, 02:26 AM
I didn't like the way he looked in the Brazilian version for some reason :unsure:
05-09-2008, 05:00 PM
the prison video is too daring not to be more intriguing. Typically, the one they don't let you see is the one that's more alluring ;).
True. This is a tough choice. I did however chose the Brazilian version because of the DRUMS!!! And I think there is a bit more Michael in it.
05-09-2008, 05:09 PM
I can't believe how many people said the Brazilian version lol!!!
The Prison version is where it's at!!!! :D
05-09-2008, 05:10 PM
Fu*k it why not BOTH?!?!

That was genious! :punk:
05-09-2008, 08:27 PM
They both have good concepts and aspects as stand alone videos if you don't compare them. If you compare them the Brazilian version is a lil more viewer friendly. The Prison version is a lil too edgy for the general public, it's more for strictly MJ fans. IDK where i read it but BOTDF is always considered a straight strict MJ fan video. His image by the time BOTDF came out appealed to generally just MJ fans. But to get back on topic, I prefer the Brazilian version whether you're comparing the two or as stand alone videos.

I :wub: both, Prision Version to me it's more credible, powerful, it represented quite well how he did feel because of the media's attack 'n makes me want to go to jail with Michael :wild: :dribble: :swoon:
11-09-2008, 12:13 AM
I prefer the version of Brazil. Michael is very cheerful, spontaneous and rap the Olodum cashed perfectly in astral that existed at that time.
15-09-2008, 12:53 PM
I love the drums in the Brazil version, but the prison version is powerful as well. Both videos fit the song very well in my opinion. I guess I'll go with Brazil in the end, but it's close.
16-09-2008, 03:46 AM
I love both versions, each one is perfect in its way, but I chose brazilian version.
Michael is more confortable, more happy in this version.. You can see that he's having fun, he's playing around, interacting with the fans...
Plus, it's because of that version that I got the chance to see him in person. :)
16-09-2008, 07:30 AM
this is hard. i love both :wub: but if i have to choose, it have to be the The Prison version
11-02-2009, 05:10 AM
i'd rather be in brazil than prison.
03-06-2009, 08:44 AM
I prefer the Brazil version.
I just love seeing MJ interacting with real people on the street.

Just watched the prison version on youtube for the first time in ages and I have to show my appreciation for this version. I'm intrigued as to the back story with this video. Does anyone know if this version was ever shown on tv? I think this video connects with the song more although I really love the scene in the Brazilian version where Michael comes out of a building where the police are and he points his finger up to them. I think that part of the video could have been put in the prison version so that he does that before making an escape.
17-06-2009, 04:36 PM
That was genious! :punk:
a bit off topic, but is your display pic really Mike? :)
19-06-2009, 11:58 PM
I picked the Brazilian version b/c more happens in that video, I enjoy Michael's interaction with the crowds & guards, & it's more colorful.
02-07-2009, 03:32 PM
I think I've changed my mind. The prison version fits the message of the song a bit better and it's a bit more universal.
22-07-2009, 08:38 AM
cant i have both lol
Brazilian version byfar. Love how everyone comes together in the end, it's more colourful with beautiful scenery.
The prison sort of creeps me out for some reason, and it looks kind of unprofessionally put together, whereas the Brazilian version looks like a work of art.
24-07-2009, 07:00 AM
Prison Version is the best=]
24-07-2009, 12:47 PM
I like both :heart:
24-07-2009, 02:22 PM
I prefer brazilian version because michael was so happy ...
that people, in this version, was very happy too and loved him so much...
