MJ: another Portland connection
I knew that Will Vinton Studios produced the video for Michael Jackson's "Speed Demon." What I didn't realize at the age of eight when it first debuted was that all of the blue screen footage was shot around Portland.
Click on the "play" button and you'll see the King of Pop's Claymation Doppelganger zooming across the Fremont Bridge and over the Willamette. The video also includes shots of a random Portland neighborhood, the Bus Mall, the downtown skyline and the Hawthorne.
