NEW YORK — People are clamouring to see Michael Jackson’s old videos in the wake of his death — especially “Thriller.”

On Tuesday, Internet video research firm Visible Measures, said Jackson’s most famous music video has been watched more than 8.5 million times online since his death Thursday.

Visible Measures, which counts Internet-wide video traffic, also factored in other versions of “Thriller,” including the dance video produced by Filipino prisoners.

While many of Jackson’s videos have been popular, the 14-minute John Landis-directed “Thriller,” made in 1983, is his most famous.
