Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” Co-Star Ola Ray Releases Terrible Tribute Single: Watch

It's The Thought That Counts?

Remember Michael Jackson‘s cute date in 1983′s iconic “Thriller” video? That was Playboy playmate-turned-actress Ola Ray. Three decades later, the 52-year-old stunner is releasing a single of her own. Words can’t adequately describe the life-changing (for the worse) experience that is “Remember”.

The MJ tribute means well but boggles the mind with its sheer awfulness. I wasn’t ready to hear the budding diva croak lyrics like “you were the king of pop, you know you are and I was your queen on the movie screen” against a generic beat that sounds like it was created on a malfunctioning iPhone app.

And her vocal? Let’s just say that she is still an incredibly beautiful woman. The video, mercifully, manages to be something of a treat — if you like staring at your computer screen in disbelief.

There’s a bizarre intro that finds our heroine sprawled on a bed looking at pictures of Michael Jackson, some highly dubious green screen action and a pitiful recreation of the “Thriller” dance. This has no redeeming quality whatsoever apart from being absolutely hilarious. As such, I highly recommend you watching it up top.

Is this tribute well-intentioned and sweet or just plain awful? I honestly can’t decide, so help me out in the comments below.


  1. This is such a beautiful song and video. It must have cost hundreds of dollars and taken tens of hours to make.

  2. Howiet

    DEAR GOD ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!
    That is outrageiosly bad!!!!!!!!!!!
    I am stunned!

    Oh wow what a way to destroy your ‘legacy’ which is not much to begin with…lol

  4. M..

    I thought she was totally broke. So where did she get the money to waste on making that??

      She was broke. Got money from suing the Estate for back royalties.
      The video is an embarrassment. Actually disgraceful. There’s no MIchael tribute – just gyrations and boobs. Yuk!

    Not that she was anything to mention in first place, but now I will always remember her from the AWFUL video. I think her best accomplishment in life was being in Michael Jackson’s video years ago, and yep that’s about it!

    I got to 2:08 and couldn’t continue. Does that mean there’s something wrong with me? If it got much better after 2:08 then I missed out. Big time!

  7. In pain

    I only got to 2:49

  8. BG

    WOW! This is awful…she does look good but she must have had lots of work done. I’ve seen other pics of her and she didn’t look like that. Why didn’t her friends tell her this was terrible? What are friends for?
