CPR - the Inspiration for Smooth Criminal

Millions of people every year learn CPR on a Resusci Annie, How many of them know that this was the inspiration behind Michael Jackson's song Smooth Criminal? 

According to Spike Lee in his documentary "Bad25" Michael had had CPR training prior to writing Smooth Criminal (on the Album Bad) and this was the inspiration behind the intense refrain "Annie are you OK?"

"Annie are you OK?" is one of the first steps when assessing whether to perform CPR on an unconscious casualty. If you would like to learn CPR take a look at our web site or give us a call for more information about our CPR and first aid training.
