In 1987, Wesley Snipes was still a fairly unknown actor trying to hit it big when he was casted as Michael Jackson‘s gang-banging buddy in the extended video for ‘Bad.’

The nearly 20-minute short film for ‘Bad’ was directed by Martin Scorsese, and Snipes portrays Mini Max, MJ’s no-good friend who gets kicks from criminal activities like mugging people in the subway. MJ’s transformation from a good kid to a leather-clad street rat are the results of pressure from Snipes… check out the clip below to see how things pan out for the unlikely pair.

His role in ‘Bad’ would garner Snipes attention to land breakout roles in flicks like ‘Major League’ and ‘New Jack City.’ All thanks to the King of Pop!
