ICONIC: Vincent Price pulls out his “Thriller” vocals for Joan Rivers

It's a unique moment in pop culture history.

Joan Rivers’ mid-’80s late night entry on Fox was, for the most part, forgettable.

However, this moment with the iconic Vincent Price may just make your hair stand straight up.

Price, a horror film icon from the medium’s early days, became a household name for a new generation as “the voice” at the end of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” song and music video.  And when Price stopped by with Joan, she asked him to do “the rap,” as it was known as by many.  We’re so glad he obliged, as we fondly look back at three icons and their contribution to Halloween-y pop culture: Michael Jackson, Vincent Price, and Joan Rivers; thank you for making THIS happen.  How special.  And how SPOOKY
