NEW YORK, Dec. 29 (UPI) -- U.S. film director Spike Lee's video for Michael Jackson's posthumously released song, "This Is It," is now on the Internet and television.

Jackson died June 25 at the age of 50. Lethal levels of the anesthesia propofol and sedatives were found in his system, but the circumstances of his death are still under investigation.

The song was released as a new single when the film "This Is It" hit theaters. The movie documented Jackson's rehearsals for a series of planned London concerts that were scrapped because of his death.

Lee's nearly five-minute-long clip for the "This Is It" single chronicles highlights of the controversial pop icon's life from his boyhood in Gary, Ind., to his triumphs on stage to the outpouring of support fans demonstrated upon hearing the news he had died, the New York Daily News noted.
