It was 30 years ago today in 1984. Michael Jackson was in his "Bad" era, working on set recording a commercial for Pepsi. During the 6th take, what was supposed to be a "controlled explosion" went off too early, setting young Michael's hair on fire. Studio employees rushed to extinguish the flames but he had already suffered 2nd & 3rd degree burns on his head and face. As compensation Pepsi offered MJ $1,500,000.00 as compensation. Michael took the money and donated it to a California Medical Center, who in turn later named a burn treatment center after him.
