    Default Was the song Dangerous supposed to get a short film?

    I recently bought the Dangerous album, and I was wondering if the song Dangerous was supposed to get a short film? Does anybody know?

    I don't think so, but it is possible.

    I believe so. I think it was originally supposed to be the last single from the Dangerous album.

    I believe that elements from You Rock My World video were inspired by the cancelled Dangerous music video.

    Dangerous (song) is one of Michael’s best songs and had massive hit potential. It’s a shame that its single release was cancelled due to the allegations.

    I believe that Dangerous should have come out as a single at the time of its performance at the AMA 93. That would have been a good enough promotion to perhaps propel it to #1 on the charts. Unfortunately, they waited too long to release Dangerous and in the end, it didn’t end up getting a release.

    Yes, I agree with you on all points. This is what I have heard and read, with regard to the Dangerous song and proposed video/short film.

    Just for members who don't know: it was rumoured, at one time, that Pamela Anderson was being vetted by Michael to appear in his proposed "Dangerous" short film - Pamela has been rather coy about this rumour and would never strongly confirm or deny, when asked, but rather just put hints and innuendos out there. She and Michael supposedly met twice for a date/discussion in Malibu.

    Debate within the fandom has always raged, as to whether we think this could be Michael, or not.



    Here at 00:56, when asked if she is actually dating MJ, Pamela says.... "he just wants me to be in his video.

    These are hardly debatable issues.

    Firstly, this guy with the mask is not Michael Jackson.

    You can also see that in this guy’s body and movements, which have nothing to do with Michael Jackson.

    Secondly, Michael Jackson and Pamela Anderson did not meet twice for a date or a discussion in Malibu.

    Actually, they never met in Malibu, and this was a fake story that simply came from the British tabloid ‘Daily Mirror’ newspaper.

    Besides, the newspaper claimed that the first meeting took place at the Shutters Hotel on Malibu Beach, which does not make sense.

    According to the Daily Mirror, Jackson and Anderson have been meeting at the Shutters Hotel on Malibu Beach, arriving separately so as not to raise suspicions” (Daily Mirror)

    Shutters Hotel is actually located on Santa Monica Beach, not on Malibu Beach.

    Wasn't it revealed later who that guy with the white mask actually was?
    I can't remember nor find anything about it online anymore, but it wasn't Michael.
    The masked guy had turned up on more than one occasion... it was some kind of promotion stunt for something.

    Apparently rumours that it is Michael Jackson were deliberately spread on scene.
    “Westwood’s personal assistant was overheard by a Reuters witness telling two members of the audience that Anderson’s mysterious plus-one was the reclusive King of Pop.” https://lacienegasmiled.wordpress.co...mela-anderson/



    I wish Dangerous had been a single with a proper short film. But I doubt that there was anything planned besides a Dangerous tour clip montage or so. Wasn't the single sheduled for late 1993? Michael was still busy on tour back then, so when would he have had the time to shoot a full video like You Rock My World.

    I think it was definitely planned to be released as a single and MV (I know, short film ). I doubt there would be a teaser directed by David Lynch otherwise, they must have planned some follow-up. Plus, it screams for being adapted to video, and they had a choreography ready as well.



    It's an awful lot we missed due to the allegations.

    Yep. He interrupted filming Is It Scary to go on the last leg of the Dangerous tour.
    Without the allegations he would probably have hardly made it to complete Is It Scary, which was also sheduled for 1993 (along the Adams Family Values film).

    And there's no trace of a priorly completed Dangerous short film. If so, why not include it on "Dangerous The Short Films" then? That montage clip at the end of "Dangerous The Short Films" maybe is a part of what would have been released as a video for the single.

    I wish I could invent a time machine to back and stop Michael from ever meeting the chandlers.

    Remember that Gutierrez was scheming in the background, infiltrating MJ’s circles. A different story would have been fabricated, if it hadn’t been the Chandlers. And Sneddon would have gleefully picked it up.

    David Lynch also made several artsy short clips and short movies. The Dangerous teaser was likely just that.
