WHO IS IT was never origionally intended for release. Michael did an unrehearsed a capella beat box version on the OPRAH interview and the public reaction was soo intense that SONY decided to release it as a single. As Michael was on tour at the time, the video was comissioned and made in a short space of time. So short in fact that Michael didnt even actully have time to film all his scenes and a lookalike, E'Casanova filmed some scenes which are in the video. Michael wasnt happy with the finished version and it was pulled from circulation on tv. Thats why the other, fan version was released, as SONY knew they couldnt have a song with no video
It was Ecass in that video and only MJ in the close ups...

thanks, i have heard that it was done after Op interview as it got mass attention, but what is fan version then? i saw the vid many times on tv in Europe and i think it was not the fan version but the original one, and was just wondering what is in this vid that made it banned... i also read that in some scenes it is not MJ, but was this really the reason why it was not for US?

when you look at the lyrics it also could have been of other reasons imo
