Michael Jackson’s outfits and choreography in his later years took on a very militaristic tone, so it’s not shocking to hear that a video distributor claims to have supplied the King of Pop with Nazi films.From the New York Post:
“Michael Jackson was a very special client to me,” said Norman Scherer, owner of a videotape distribution company in the 1990s.
In 1995, Scherer was approached by a New Yorker looking to place big orders for a “famous” client — as long as he could be discreet.
“He had a really good collection,” said Scott Schaffer, Jackson’s former personal assistant, who hunted down Scherer to buy obscure titles. “I knew what [Jackson] wanted.”
As for the Hitler flicks — which included such gems as “Nazis — Of Pure Blood,” “Oasis of the Zombies” and “Hitler’s Children” — Scherer assumed that the singer just loved the military garb and lockstep marching.
