Troubled superstar Michael Jackson is hoping to win back American TV viewers by revealing his most playful moments - including a pie fight with Macaulay Culkin and director JON LANDIS.

Jackson has handed over hours of unseen home video footage to American TV network Fox for an upcoming two-hour special.

As well as his kids PARIS and PRINCE MICHAEL talking candidly about their father, the show also features Jacko playing pranks on friends and fooling around in shopping centres.

But it's the never-seen-before footage of Jackson and former child star Culkin plotting to make a mess of Landis at the wrap party for the BLACK + WHITE video that shows the pop superstar at his most playful.

After Culkin pies Landis and the creamy weapons start flying, Jackson is caught on camera giggling and jumping for joy - while covered in cream pie himself.

The pop superstar hopes the video footage further helps bury British journalist Martin Bashir's damning documentary, which shocked the world earlier this year (03).
