Michael Jackson, despite all the bad press before he passed away, was a musical icon. The music he made transcended generations, and his moves inspired millions to do the same.
Sonic the Hedgehog, despite all the bad video games recently, is a video game icon. For a while, he was the most recognizable mascot, surpassing both Mario and Mickey Mouse.
So, it seems only natural that someone would combine both of them into a mash-up video.
By taking the music video for Jackson’s song, Smooth Criminal, and overlaying it with Sonic synthesizer music, you get a very interesting video that brings back fond memories of the old Sega Genesis.
