Florida residents recently got a rude awakening when ‘Billie Jean,’ Michael Jackson’s classic ode to baby daddy drama, played for hours over a school’s malfunctioning public address system in the middle of the night. Well, that explains the reports of spontaneous “moonwalking.”

Residents living near East Lee County High School’s football stadium were treated to eight consecutive hours of the song beginning at 1AM. One bleary-eyed resident said the song played almost 40 times in a row.

We love MJ as much as the next guy, but that would definitely make us want to “beat it.” And by “it,” we mean whoever was responsible for this snafu. Watch a report on this inadvertent Michael Jackson marathon below.
