IOS ANGELES (UPI) - The much
ballyhooed Pepsi-Cola commercials in
which Michael Jackson's hair aught on
fire debuts on network television during
tgnight's Grammy Awards, but
nmillions already will have seen'the 60-
spcond spots.
The commercials were presented
yesterday on MTV, cable's music
cpannel, as a world premiere "ex-
eluive interview presentation" with
l$ob Giraldi, who directed the commer-
cials as well as Jackson's Beat It video.
"I think the whole world is interested
i0 seeing these commercials," said
l ITV executive Les Garland, who is so
convinced of. Jackson's pulling power
h~e has agreed to air the Pepsi spots free
df charge.
Sunday night, Pepsi held a black-tie
rMception at New York City's Lincoln
Center to show the commercials- to its
1,000 U.S. bottlers. The soft drink firm
glso showcased the commercials last
night in another posh party for Pepsi
VIPs and guests at the Rex Restaurant
in Los Angeles.-.
Jackson, ironically, is endorsing a
product he would likely never use.
Although his brothers drink Pepsi in the
ads, Jackson, a vegetarian and health-
fbod disciple, doesn't.
The commercials have no footage of
tpe accident.
There may be problems, however, in
airing the commercials before the end
of the program.
Jackson is nominated for a record 12
Grammys, and CBS-TV rules prevent
"cast members" from apearing in
commercials in the body of shows. The
rule may bump, the Pepsi spots to the
beginning or end of the presentations.
The commercials feature the

back of his head that he received while filming a Pepsi commercial to promote his
concert this summer. The commercials will be aired tonight.

During the filming of the commer-
cials last month, Jackson was descen-

Auditorium, site of the Grammy Awar-

plosives ignited his hair. He was
hospitalized one night with a palm-sized
burn on the back of his head. The wound
is now covered with a toupee.

Textures aboun
SURFACES AND STRUCTURES," a national traveling
paper invitational, is now on exhibit at the Slusser
Gallery in the University Art and Architecture Building. The
sA.w is comprised of works from 37 artists across the country
and one from Spain.
,,omposed primarily of handmade paper and assorted
fabrics, the works give concise examples from the broad
spectrum allowed by the exhibit's title. Texture abounds in
ipfnite variations of material, color, and application as the
bevndries between painting and sculpture become fuzzy, if
golpointless. The surfaces'depth and grain draw the obser-
ver in and many works almost seem to tease by demanding
thWt forbidden touch.
Several local artists' works are included in the invitational,
including one by Ted Ramsey, a faculty member of the"

in paper exhibit
University art school. Two works of Ann Arborite B. J. Ben-
nett are striking as linearly placed fuchsia squares give the
illusion of a continual sweeping motion.
"Mardi Gras," a piece from another local artist, Frank
Cassara, is a splendid combination of abstract geometric
figures and a paper surface whose texture goes far beyond
that of a normal abstract painting.
Though initially awkward to those accustomed to more
representational art, the works present well thought out and
skillfully crafted examples of what can result from com-
bining various art media. Combinations that may very well
be more aesthetically significant than any medium from
which it draws.
The Slusser Gallery is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.
to 5 p.m. The exhibit runs until March 7. -David Grayson
