Top 10 Most Groundbreaking Videos Of All Time
Michael Jackson's 1983 hit Thriller has been named the 'Most Groundbreaking Video Of All Time'.
The 14-minute zombie epic, directed by London filmmaker John Landis, topped a poll for MySpace UK.
Will Francis, site editor of MySpace UK, said modern videomakers could learn a lesson from the past.
'Only two of the top ten were made this century. Which shows despite massive advances in technology, a brilliant idea coupled with a great star is an unbeatable format,' Sky News quoted him as saying.
