Bille Jean loosely followed the song's narrative. It features Jackson as a lonely, elusive figure walking the streets while the ground glowed wherever he stepped, suggesting Jackson's stardom and fame. A trenchcoated "stalker", possibly a journalist, pursues Jackson, supposedly to get the scoop on the titular love-interest, missing his opportunity when Jackson seemingly vanishes beneath glowing bedsheets with his never-seen mystery lover. The Muppets' "I'm Gonna Always Love You" and Refugee Camp All-Stars' "Avenues" parody the video.
The Bates' Version
Bille Jean features a parody of Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho.
