Eric Nash stunned a crowd on 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica with his version of the ‘Super Moonwalk’ and has already impressed YouTube users.
The 25-year-old dancer seems to be prejudicing the laws of physics by gliding backwards with ease in a 21-second clip of his routine, writes The Daily Mail.
The performer undeterred by the rain that sweeps across the busy street and effortlessly executes the self-styled King of Popâs best-known move.
The clip captioned âSUPER MoonWalkingâ has taken the internet by storm with more than 35,000 YouTube hits in one day.
The video has been approved more than 3,000 likes and received about 400 comments from internet users who were stunned by the nimble manâs moves.
âHow is this physically possible??âwonders kakatana5959. âEat your heart out, MJ,â wrote one person. âSomebody give that guy a medalâ and âDAMN!! I NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE!!!!â added others.
When speaking of the history of the moonwalk, Michael Jackson didnât invent it, but the singer did make the dance his own, performing it with such technical mastery, and to such a wide audience, that the move and the man became inseparable.
The first performance occurred during a live television special, Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever, which was viewed by audience of 47 million people.
Some experts are sure that Michael Jackson had learned the move from Jeffrey Daniel, a Los Angeles-born member of the British pop group Shalamar and a reknown West Coast street dancer.
âThe move comes late in the performance of his hit single âBilly Jeanâ and is, in essence, a simple back slide,â explains Obit.
âThe same move had been demonstrated by countless performers, from Cab Calloway to Fred Astaire, and was a standard among tap dancers for decades. Yet something about the way Jackson performed it that night made it stand out for the ages.â
