Video: The 1984 Pepsi Commercial Fire-The Day Michael Jackson's Pill Addiction Began

I remember when Michael Jackson's hair caught on fire during the filming of The Jackson's Pepsi ad back in 1984.

The event was big deal and there were even rumors flying that Michael Jackson died. Of course he didn't die as Jackson continued to make tour and make songs.

But what fans didn't know was that MJ's scalp was burned so bad that he started taking prescription drugs, which allegedly led to his addiction to prescription meds.

On US Weekly Magazine's website there is new never before seen footage of the fire. During the video, you not only get to see how much fire engulfed Jackson hair, but also how bad Jackson's scalp was burned in the process.

Although the fire was put out quickly, those chain of events would change Michael Jackson's life forever.
