The video of king of pop Michael Jackson who received burn injuries while filming a Pepsi commercial in 1984 has surfaced on Internet.

Us magazine has leaked the video of the onstage mishap that took place 25 years ago, in which Jackson's scalp was burned, which further lead the pop sensation to prescription pain medications.

The footage shows pyrotechnics exploding near Jackson and yellow flames immediately erupting on his black hair. The pop star continues to dance down stairs for about 10 seconds before stage hands rush to him to douse the fire that has covered his scalp.

The video posted at usmagazine.com also shows early takes of the commercial in which the fireworks were triggered several seconds after Jackson began dancing down the stairs, putting him well away from the blasts.

However, the magazine authorities are not commenting on how the video was obtained and why was it leaked.
