New Michael Jackson Video, Starring ... YOU

2/28/2011 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The people at Sony are coming up with all sorts of ways to cover up for the fact they don't have Michael Jackson to star in his new music videos -- and now they want his fans to fill the void.

Michael Jackson Behind the Mask Video

MichaelJackson.com launched a project that recruits fans to upload and edit their own clips -- and the best ones will be used in the actual video for the song "Behind the Mask."

The Behind the Mask Project begins March 7 and is open to boys and girls of all ages ages 13 and up.

There`s gotta be some drug infested child molesters out there somewhere, that are up for the job. His fans don`t care, some of those sick puppies whould`ve let him molest their own children. He was a POS, criminal and severely mentally challenged. Let`s let this freak rest in piece and not support his leech family. May they someday have to get real jobs.

Jim, you ill informed POS. Get some facts before sounding off, you look like a complete moron. There are plenty of websites, including FBI with the real facts. Go get yourself clued up on the actual facts before making stupid, pathetic posts like you just made. You're a f*cking troll and i hope that when you die, you rot in hell for eternity. You pathetic, immature, full of ****, ugly man. I actually pity s*** buckets like you who believe everything they read in the paper. Maybe your mother should of brought you up better than she obviously did because then you might of had a more mature approach to the truth instead of spreading your vile lies. Grow up you tiny prick of an idiot. *looks at Jim with complete pity*

wow, the hate on this board is just ridiculous. I have been on these boards since his death and they have gone from one extreme to the exact opposite. but the one thing that hasn't changed is the L.O.V.E. for this man. That will never change no matter what is said.
About this project, I am glad to see Sony wanting fans input on this and thru it all there maybe something good come out of it.
But in reality, the magic is gone. Michael made those videos of his come to life, and when you do not have the main character, the gold magic at the end will not be there. That final magic touch will not be put on them. His creativity in his videos and on the stage was just spectacular. And will not be able to be matched whatever sony tries to pull out of the bag.

RIP MJ

What I don't understand is why the vicious haters take their time to come onto every article on Michael if they are not also fascinated by him. Don't they see that they are letting Michael absorb their lives too by taking their time to post hateful comments. Good comments or bad, they still have Michael Jackson in their mind don't they? Bad press is better than no press and even hateful comments are still keeping Michael alive. Look at all the others that have died and never mentioned again.
Thanks haters for keeping Michael's name out there. Gives us beLIEvers a chance to respond, and refreshes Michael's name. Keep it up haters, keep Michael Jackson in your mind!!! Keep responding so we know you are thinking about Michael also.

Sony has got some nerve! We--the fans--are banned from posting on YouTube if we use music or video of Michael that Sony claims Intellectual Rights to... yet they want us to do just that to freely promote a song they should be doing themselves.
I LOVE the CD "Michael". That doesn't mean we should do Sony's job for them. They can pay to get rare video and photos of Michael that people all around the world possess. Like I said once before... that would cost Sony money and that would cut into their massive profits. But if Sony cared about Michael's legacy and image as a perfectionist, they could pay and use those videos and photos to creatively piece together and extraordinary music video for "Hollywood Tonight" and "Behind The Mask".
If Sony had taken better care of its star in the first place, none of this would be necessary.

Laugh fan base laugh at Sony!!!! Six comments for a video not starring michael jackson. thumbs down to sony. Sony would not help Michael Jackson promote Invincible. Now that they've invested $200million dollars for unreleased "Sound Bites" from the estate, they want the fans to come out and support them. ROTFL!!(Michael has more than enough quality material out there from 1968-2009)
Forget Sony! Sony sux! Sony is lame! Sony is a joke! who in the world is this lame group at Sony still trying to promote this stuff? Michael the beloved superstar is dead. Sony has nothing to replace him with. what part of Michael Jackson wanted nothing to do with sony does sony not understand? LOL!! what a joke organization Sony is.....good grief. Michael sold almost a billion copies during his lifetime. Sony can't do anything to beat that now that Michael's dead. Michael was a world record holder during his lifetime. There's nothing sony can to further michael's legacy except take their hands off of it.

btw: my post makes #7. hopefully that's the total number of copies to be purchased by the internals if sony issues cash back coupons

@#5 Kim agreed. Michael Is The King of short films(videos)! Before he passed he was planning to become a Director and was
taking classes from a University Of California Professor.

Love You Forever Michael,RIP

I thinks its great that fans have a chance to help with this. Surely there is a fan out there that can think like MJ did and put those thoughts into a video. I understand that no one will ever have the power/thunder in there music, short films, and dance like MJ but surely there is someone who would make MJ proud. Plus it would be a chance to get recognized them self.
