    Anyway, I really liked MJ’s European-oriented look in that music clip. I would even say that he looked incredibly pretty (& really sexy) in the first shots of that clip, which makes me wonder even more about the purpose of using also an impersonator.

    Was that ever confirmed in some way?
    I never really thought an impersonator was (partly) used in this video.

    As far as i remember, the clip-montage video was made for the US market, because after the Oprah interview where Michael did the WII acapella/beatbox they wanted it out as a single quickly to seize the momentum. WII was released as a single at a later point outside of US, with the real video.

    I think it's because they have their own organisation that deals with royalties/rights and stuff or something along those lines; I often hear about music being blocked on YouTube for Germany. Does suck though, I really dislike the concept of geo-blocking videos in this day and age :\

    Is the clip montage one still available? I don't remember ever seeing it.

    This is correct. It's estimated that 60% of the 1,000 most popular videos won't play in Germany...
    However YoutTube and Gema (the royalty company) just reached an agreement today after seven years of arguing, negotiations and trials.

    So yeah, Who Is It and many, many more videos finally aren't blocked in Germany anymore and can be watched without using proxy stuff.
