This eery montage where  Michael Jackson‘s dance moves are slowed down reminded me of silent-screen great Charlie Chaplin (1889-1977) and of course Marcel Marceau (1923-2007)who was greatly admired by Jackson and inspired his moonwalk. The whiter Jackson’ skin became, the more tragic and mime-like his performances.

In this one the crowd goes absolutely wild watching Jackson perform “Billie Jean” 30 years after its release:
