This High School Kid’s Michael Jackson Dance Is Blowing My Mind

Watch And Be Amazed

When high school junior Brett Nichols performed this Michael Jackson-inspired “Billie Jean” dance routine at Pitman High School’s Talent Rally (the action starts around 1:12 on the video), he probably didn’t expect to become an overnight internet star — but then, how could he not expect to get attention with moves like that!? When a Pitman High alum saw the video posted on the school’s Facebook page, he hightailed the link over to Reddit, where the video launched into an internet obsession, and I am now mildly mesmerized by Nichols’ moonwalking skills. MTV even claims Nichols’ footwork is better than Michael Jackson himself, which sounds a little blasphemous to me, but needless to say, I’ll be watching this on repeat every time I need a smile today. I kind of hope he finds a way to bank on this oddly specific skill after high school — everyone needs a quality MJ impersonator now and then, right? You rock, Brett! [New York Post, MTV]
