‘NBA 2K’ Player Recreates ‘Thriller’ Music Video In Game…And It’s EPIC!!! (VIDEO)


I guess that the career modes in sports video games are now robust enough that you can go WAY off the reservation and not only break away from basketball but…recreate Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”?

Oh yes.

Here you go. The video from gamer Marlu_tha_kang tells the story far better than words ever could.

CAUSE THIS IS THRILLER!!! Shoutouts to @fred_acosta_2k18 & @gibbs2324 for holding me down! Teamwork makes the dream work! In my excitement, I forgot to select a frame to show off this post. Hopefully the reposters got my back when adding it to their pages #NBA2K18 #2KSports #The2KIGCommunity #NBA2KCommunity #MichaelJackson #Thriller #Halloween #XboxOne #XB1 #Xbox @nba2k @ronnie2k @ld2k_ @rademita

The moves I sorta get, as the “Thriller” choreography looks vaguely basketball-ish. But I’m not sure why a 2017 basketball game would let its story mode protagonists dress up like Michael Jackson.

Don’t get me wrong; I’m not complaining. This is awesome! But now I just want to see a Michael Jackson video game with a story mode.

Wait. No I don’t.

Here’s the real “Thriller” music video, in case you needed a refresher:
