Unseen footage of MJ's Dangerous remains unsold

MUMBAI: Unseen footage of Michael Jackson‘s 1993 Dangerous tour that was expected to fetch 4-5 million pounds failed to sell at an auction last Saturday in Britain.


Around two hours long, the footage was shot by Jackson‘s own production crew and meant to be an intimate portrait of Jackson on tour. But the singer was unhappy with the quality and gave the only copy to his driver who was now trying to sell the footage, auction house The Fame Bureau said.


Said a spokesman of the auctioneer who specialises in pop memorabilia, "We are still talking to people, but online it did not sell."


He was however confident that a buyer would be found, although nothing is a certainty. The auction house said that it had been forced to remove a brief clip of the video from its website before the online auction after Jackson‘s record label made a copyright claim.


The fact that a successful buyer may not be able to use the film for commercial purposes may have dampened demand given the hefty asking price, but the spokesman played down the copyright dispute. "I don‘t think that was a problem at all," he said, adding that any serious potential buyer would be fully aware of the issue.


Items related to Jackson have skyrocketed in value since his death in 2009. The red and black leather jacket he wore for the Thriller video sold for $1.8 million in Los Angeles in June.
