Michael Jackson’s Neverland Favourites, an All Boy Video Anthology – Whose tape was it?

Anybody who has seen Michael Jackson’s FBI file released in 2009 would be familiar with a curious file titled 95a-hq-1148159.pdf, about a supposed child pornography video.

This file detailed an analysis by the FBI for the US Customs Service on a video titled “Michael Jackson’s Neverland Favourites, an All Boy Video Anthology”, to see if it was a first generation copy or a subsequent copy. The title of the video is certainly puzzling – this video was not seized from Jackson, and there is no evidence that Jackson had any involvement in it. However it seems bizarre that anybody would use this title, unless they felt it was applicable in some way or another.

There has been much speculation about exactly what was on the videotape – although the FBI file’s subject is listed as child pornography, the FBI file says nothing about what is on the tape. Some have speculated that it is merely video of children playing at Neverland, or innocuous home videos of Jackson’s children. We can reveal, however, that we have obtained a file which shows exactly what was on the videotape. This file is the original request from the US Custome Service to the FBI and details the contents of the tape.

Not surprisingly, considering the name of the individual in the title, the video is dedicated to boys. The tape is nearly 6 hours long, and includes:

  • Swim Party – “Male youths (pre-teen?) cavort in and around pool, later have snake” – actually a 70’s film from Lyric International, known for it’s films about boys which are still collected by pedophiles today.
  • Summer Freedom – “Eight pre-teen(?) boys at beach” (another Lyric International title)
  • Title redacted – 7 minute film of 2 boys on a bed.
  • Untitled
  • Dear redacted
  • Action Boys
  • Das redacted
  • Das redacted
  • Title redacted
  • Czech Mates – listed elsewhere as a “nudist documentary featuring boys”
  • You Are Not Alone – a 1978 Danish coming of age film set in a Danish all-boys boarding school
  • Untitled
  • Untitled
  • Redacted Diary

Whether the video actually contains any child pornography isn’t made clear, however it seems unlikely as many of the films feature a favourite pedophile meme – nude boys doing fun things. Contrary to popular belief, most pedophiles do not collect child pornography for a couple of reasons – most find it distasteful, and/or they don’t want to be caught collecting illegal material. See the nude boy “art books” and nude photos of his young friends that Jackson collected.

Actually, after rereading that page, I’m starting to get an idea why this videotape had Jackson’s name in the title.
