The First Performance of the Moon Walk
One of the few things that keeps my faith in American culture is that after Michael Jackson died, we decided to remember him for his art rather than the controversy that surrounded his personal life. Captured here is the first ever performance of the famous “Moon Walk” dance that defined his career and inspired a million middle school kids to shuffle awkwardly through dusty playgrounds at recess and get their sneakers completely filthy. Watch the whole performance or click here to skip right to the good part.To be fair, we should mention that Bill Bailey did his same move about thirty years earlier, but Jackson did it with more style.
There are a few contenders for the very first superhero, like “The Scarlet Pimpernel” or “Gladiator” but right now I’m gonna have to agree with Wikipedia and go with “Spring-Heeled Jack.”
