The clip begins with the singer laughing hysterically before being asked a few questions about his knowledge of the sex abuse allegations. The singer was 37-years-old at the time of the video and he can be seen giggling after being asked about Macaulay Culkin, Brett Barnes and Jordan Chandler. His lawyer refused to answer questions about Barnes and Chandler while Jackson was comfortable stating that he knows Culkin on tape. This is believed to be one of the only times MJ was filmed speaking about the sexual misconduct allegations against him. He is visibly nervous, squirming at times as he covers his face while he laughs.
The iconic artist recites a few bible verses at the end of the video, which is believed to be from over three hours of VHS recordings.
