Never-before-seen concert footage of Michael Jackson, valued at $6.4 million (£4 million), has failed to sell at auction.
The film was recorded in 1993 when the King of Pop was in Buenos Aires, Argentina for a stop on his Dangerous tour.
Jackson's former chauffeur is believed to have been given the sole copy of the footage by the singer himself after deciding to scrap the film because he was unhappy with the project.
He decided to put the item up for sale in a Fame Bureau auction in the U.K. on Saturday (26Nov11) and placed a $6.4 million (£4 million) reserve price on the two-hour tape.
But the clip struggled to attract buyers online and remains on the market.
A Fame Bureau spokesperson tells Reuters, "At this stage it has not sold. We are still talking to people, but online it did not sell."
Potential bidders were reportedly turned off the lot after bosses at Jackson's record label made a copyright claim and forced the auctioneers to remove a clip of the video from their website.
The film is not permitted for commercial purposes, but the Fame Bureau rep is adamant that was not an issue for the lack of interest.
He adds, "I don't think that was a problem at all."

This is just amazing. Is there anyone who got any memorabilia of Michael's (especially if MJ himself gave it to you)that wouldn't want to just keep it. Everyone wants to put a pricetag (ridiculous or not) on it. I really think this is pathetic garbage. Michael liked, trusted,and appreciated this driver and like all the rest of them who personally knew Michael can't help but believe that MJ was a good way to cash in!. I'm glad it didn't sell because if this driver had any class he would have offered it to his kids or his mom or raffle it off to a TRUE FAN WHO WHO HAVE LOVED IT, APPRECIATED IT AND PROTECTED IT FROM MONEY HUNGERY IDIOTS!!
