The Michael Jackson video game was a thing.

Sometimes you come across facts that you need to say aloud to as many people as possible because you just can’t believe that they are true.

Like this:

In 1988 and 1989, video game manufacturers released video games for the arcade, the computer and Sega’s video game platform based upon Michael Jackson’s film, Moonwalker, in which Michael Jackson must rescue kidnapped children from the evil Mr. Big while incorporating synthesized versions of his greatest hits and many of his classic dance moves.

I played a lot of video games in the 1980s and 1990s, both in arcades and at home.

Moonwalker was never one of them.
