â€˜cause this is thriller, thriller night
and no one’s gonna save you from the beast about strike
you know it’s thriller, thriller night
you’re fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller tonight
Who can forget Michael Jackson’s â€œThriller?â€ It freaked many people out on the day it aired and became a smash hit. Michael Jackson’s Thriller is the bestselling album of all time – with 45 million worldwide sales powered by seven Top 10 U.S. singles and eight Grammy Awards. In other words, Thriller was ground-breaking! It was all about breaking records. Its legacy is undeniable and its influence can be heard in today’s rap, pop, rock, soul, funk, and hip hop. But the memory of Michael Jackson should not only live on through his music. The King of Pop can also be remembered in a pair of Thriller Headphones.
The Thriller Headphones were created before the untimely death of MJ. Obviously, this pair of headphone which won the Nokia headset competition in 2008 is different from any ordinary headphone because this one has a quirky â€œThrillerâ€ concept. The head strap of the â€œThrillerâ€ headphones presents a mosaic of a graveyard, with slime-green grass, gravestones, and a dead tree with a creepy owl perched atop a branch. At either end of the strap, there are zombies emerging from graves and there are moldy wooden doors where a werewolf Michael Jackson (from the Thriller video) is bursting through the door.
Only one pair was made by Nokia into a working model though. I hope that MJ’s death inspires Nokia to produce at least a limited edition run of the â€œThrillerâ€ Headphones.
