NBA 2K18 players re-create Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ on NBA 2K18
Reddit user MarLuThaKang had a dream. No, it’s not to liberate America from social inequality and solve police brutality. Rather, it’s to pay homage to the late, great Michael Jackson by re-creating ‘Thriller’ on NBA 2K18.
MarLuThaKang was able to fulfill his dream and is now sharing the product of his hard work for everybody to consume.

For the non-gamers, NBA2K18 has a feature called ‘The Neighborhood’ which allows users to virtually explore the streets, go to a gym, and apparently, even dress up like Jackson and perform the classic hit song out in the open. It’s really one way the game is rocking the world of gamers.
According to The Source, MarLuThaKang’s original choice of track was ‘Smooth Criminal’ but found out that the video game didn’t have the right attire available to match the one Jackson and his crew had in the 1987 smash music video.
“[It] took a little over 30 minutes actually,” MarLuThaKang said. “I originally wanted to do one while wearing the “Smooth Criminal” shirt, but unfortunately Swags doesn’t have white fedoras.”
With MarLuThaKang’s masterpiece, we may be looking for more to come from users inspired by this unique Thriller adaptation.
