    It's worth it if we get Prince T-shirts as a result (signed by Bubbles). And of course some Mantovani CDs.

    While we're at Moonwalker trivia...

    Did you know that the two 'heavy' motorbike guys from Speed Demon are based on real life motorcycle-riding/wrestling twins who performed stunt shows and held the world record for fattest twins in the 1970's?

    I was JUST wondering about this! Thank you! Although the names written on their hats in the film differ, don't they?

    See when Michael exits "MJJ Studios" under an archway on the motorcycle...does this have a real world location?

    Hah, never noticed that (probably because I never watched it in BluRay quality).
    Seems to read Tyrone and Bif?

    I guess they were meant to be just losely based on the McGuire twins. I don't think there was another fat pair of motorbike riding twins.

    Or, since in Moonwalker they appear as autograph chasers, they had those hats autographed by other hollywood stars before running into Michael?



    But seems those writings were changed at some point (during the original production):




    They also appeared in the Simpsons and Family Guy.



    A bit mroe about their story here. They famously once made a trip on those little bikes from NY to LA, which explains why pop culture still remembers them that way.

    I wonder who the director at the Western film set is based on that Michael runs into.

    The one on the right is Biff.

    That’s most likely Steven Spielberg.
    This is Spielberg in 1986:

    Most probably. I always thought he mostly looks like a combination of Steven Spielberg and Francis Ford Coppola though.

    Good point! That might very well be the case. Maybe this is even an inside joke referring to something on the set of Captain EO.

    I think I automatically went with Spielberg because he appeared in Liberian Girl shortly after.





    Without the glasses, he looks even more like the claymation director in Moonwalker.

    Spielberg was the most famous (the most appealing to the widest audience) in the 80's, and there's clearly a similarity, so it's a good guess by all means. I just love the idea that the character is based on several typical directors, with whom MJ had the chance to work to some extent.

    Yeah, I like that theory.
    It’s part of the beauty of Moonwalker that there are so many hidden references to showbiz at the time. It’s a lot like with the Simpsons (back when they were good). The more you watch it, the more you discover.
