If you weren't at least 12-years-old in 1992, then you won't remember the insane hype leading up to the premiere of Michael Jackson's "Remember The Time" short movie.

The Internet was not easily accessible to everyone back then. But it was difficult to ignore the massive marketing machinery behind the short movie for Michael's 2nd single off of his multi-platinum Dangerous album.

"Remember The Time"'s music video was loosely based on Eddie Murphy's hit comedy movie Coming To America (1988).

Leading up to the world premiere, MTV and BET teased us by airing clips of the behind the scenes magic that went into making this 9-minute spectacle directed by John Singleton. When "Remember The Time" finally premiered on MTV and BET simultaneously on Feb. 22, 1992, it was one of the longest music videos ever, clocking in at just over 9 minutes.

RTT starred some of the biggest names of that era: including comedian Eddie Murphy, supermodel Iman and NBA star Magic Johnson, who 1 year earlier announced he was infected with the HIV virus and retired from the NBA.

The music video dance sequences were choreographed by Fatima Robinson. Fatima also choreographed the opening credits sequence of Queen Latifah's hit TV show "Living Single", as well as scores of rap music videos in the 80s and 90s.

What struck me the most when I first viewed this video back in 1992 were how much lighter Michael had bleached his skin, the awkward kiss between him and Iman, and the Egyptian dance scenes, which I still love!

    Now George Zimmerman has a website. This is from CNN.com

    Zimmerman recently launched a website, to warn supporters about groups that falsely claim to be raising funds for his defense and to solicit donations for himself.

    "I am the real George Zimmerman," declares the website, set up over the weekend.

    "On Sunday February 26th, I was involved in a life altering event which led me to become the subject of intense media coverage. As a result of the incident and subsequent media coverage, I have been forced to leave my home, my school, my employer, my family and ultimately, my entire life. This website's sole purpose is to ensure my supporters they are receiving my full attention without any intermediaries."

    he statement posted on therealgeorgezimmerman.com warns viewers that "some persons and/or entities have been collecting funds, thinly veiled as my 'Defense Fund' or 'Legal Fund.' I cannot attest to the validity of these other websites as I have not received any funds collected, intended to support my family and I through this trying, tragic time."

    The site includes a link through which viewers can donate money to pay for Zimmerman's lawyers and living expenses "in lieu of my forced inability to maintain employment." Zimmerman pledges to "personally maintain accountability of all funds received."

    "I am grateful to my friends that have come to my aid, whether publicly or personally, never questioning my integrity or actions, understanding that I cannot discuss the details of the event on February 26th, and allowing law enforcement to proceed with their investigation unhindered," the 28-year-old Zimmerman wrote elsewhere on the site. "Once again, I thank you for your patience and I assure you, the facts will come to light."

    Azzhole.

    My husband has similar theories, especially after that 'South Park' episode where they made fun of him curing his HIV with actual cash money...

    If you think about it Magic made a SHYTLOAD of money after he came out and then years later claims that if he were to take a test it would show up negative....something in that milk ain't clean! :think:

    Good Morning! Thanks Sandra this was my fav video. @Ms. Fashion- That's big Les, Fatima wasn't that thick. I remember the beef with Big Les and Dr. Dre- didn't he have to do a Domestic Violence PSA after spitting on her, never liked him sense. One of the dancers danced with Janet's That's the Way Love Goes Video, and I think she was one of the Fly Girls with Jennifer Lopez. Most recently she plays the aunt in the black indie film Mississippi. Hadn't seen her face in years. It was a small world back in the 80's everyone headed to LA after highschool to become a star- we went on Soul Train, tried out for a Different World- but best of all were the Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall parties Honeyyyy. Too bad Whitney never recovered from Hollywood.

    IMO HIV is a death sentence. People try and make it seem like you get the monster you straight. NO the Eff it ain't!! You have to take a cocktail of meds that can either agree with your system or break it down even further. One that can make your limbs hurt, another that can taste like straight steel. Every day you living thinking in the back of your mind if its progressing into AIDS...You can't live how you lived prior to that diagnosis. Ish is real scary and the fact that propoganda is making it seem like the common cold is beyond effed up.

    Got kids and adults wilin the eff out with themselves and thinking yeah if I got it, ima be aight cuz of these drugs. Yeah okay. Smh

Because many good people have died and will die behind this disease yet he's walking around 20 years later in perfect health, accepting donations to his foundation for research. Something ain't right about that and my heart can't bring me to support a damn thing that he does when my daddy is in the ground behind the same disease because he didn't have the same access/funds to buy a cure
