How did Michael Jackson do that.... the secret is out

Everyone knows the iconic choreography Michael Jackson created around his music, words cant really capture the magic, especially the dancing featured around the song "Smooth Criminal". Probably in my view the 3rd most popular video behind Thriller and Beat it. As y'all remember there is in particular a noteworthy section where Michael and his dancers seem to float mid air. Like yourself I have tried to replicate this move many times and stopped short of falling flat on my face. if you didn't try when you were younger you aint being honest, you know you did  ;-). Anyways so sorry to burst your bubble put it isn't any super human leg muscle but a maaad illusion courtesy of the imaginative Michael Jackson.

Being the maaad visionary and creative genius that he is Michael Jackson actually created this illusion for the video and then went on protect it by filing a patent on the invention.

Here is the video in its entirety, well worth a watch, but if you lazy bones don't have the the time just watch the move as featured in the next video after this one.

So this is truly a maaad moment in music

Jackson's patented invention is described as an "Anti Gravity Shoes". So any body who want s to use this technique or illusion has to pay rights to Michael Jackson ....that right Chi Ching more money to the Jackson estate, maaaaad

See the video below to see how it works
