Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' Girlfriend Starred In Awesome Eighties Jheri Curl Commercial

Posted: Updated:

Ola Ray had us shaking in our high-top sneakers with her performance as Michael Jackson's terrified girlfriend in 1983's "Thriller." (We'd act like a bunch of scaredy cats if that meant sharing the same air as the King of Pop.) But the doe-eyed beauty, who landed the highly-coveted music video role, also starred in a Jheri curl hair commercial.

In the video above, we see Ray sporting the popular '80s hairstyle to promote an at-home kit called Classy Curl. Her S-shaped ringlets are shiny, bouncy and virtually drip-free unlike the Jheri curls in the film "Coming to America."

While you won't catch us wearing Jheri curls today, we'd have to agree that this retro hairdo is "in a class by itself."
