Michael Jackson's new TV ad for the re-make of 'Thriller' will be played during the half-time of Super Bowl Sunday.
Michael Jackson's return to the music scene can be as early as this weekend as it is reported that the pop king will appear at the Super Bowl. The surprise movement is part of the promotion of his upcoming release, 'Michael Jackson 25th Anniversary of Thriller'.
However, sources said that Jackson won't physically appear during the half time, but a TV advertisement for a vitamin-enhanced drink by Pepsi will be broadcast with a Thriller theme instead. The video will be played during the showdown game between New England Patriots and New Giants on Sunday, February 3. After that, the album will also be promoted through "major TV, radio, online and outdoor advertising campaign", New York Post reported.
The re-release of 'Thriller' is set to be dropped in stores on February 11, with new remixes of his classics like 'Billie Jean' and 'Beat It'. Earlier this week, Jackson has promised a surprise in the album saying, "I'm coming back. And I've got a very special treat for all of my fans. I have been recording Thriller: 25th Anniversary, with a lot of surprise guests."
Meanwhile, there are rumors that the singer will make an actual performance on-stage at this year's Grammy Awards which will take place in Los Angeles on February 10.
