New York később is fontos színhely volt Michael számára, itt forgatták 1987-ben Martin Scorsese rendezésében a Bad videót.

A film egy részét a hires New York-i metrón vették fel, és ebben a klipben debütált Wesley Snipes is, aki a szerepe szerint egy bandavezért alakít. Az azóta világhíressé vált színésznek nem volt idegen a környezet, hiszen ott nőtt fel, nem így Michaelnek, aki Wesley szerint félve sétált Harlem utcáin.

Az akkori eseményekről Snipes egy magazinnak nyilatkozott a napokban.
