The 1983 music video for the Michael Jackson song “Thriller,” directed by John Landis, was launched and played regularly on MTV, helping the album Thriller become the best-selling album in history. The Library of Congress described it as “the most famous music video of all time,” and in 2009, it became the first music video inducted into the National Film Registry as “culturally, historically or aesthetically” significant.
