He sounds like Michael too.

There can be no exaggerating how much this scene influenced me. Wardrobe, style, dance moves, general ethos. When I was a little boy, other kids wanted to be Steve Austin or Evil Knievel. I wanted to be Bob Fosse.
I remember this from when I was a kid. Growing up in the 70s was challenging.
I'm willing to be the Hellenistic Greeks already did this. Those guys did everything.
I won't believe it until I see Bob Fosse moonwalking ... oh will you look at the time, it's 4:22.

It's so great that a man who moves like that has a goatee, balding pate, sunburns, a shirt cut to show some chest hair and yellow tinted sunglasses. That is the glory of the 70's.
Also: Can you imagine dancing like that in the Arizona (or similar) heat?
I don't know if it's a direct ripoff, but there's a clear fucking line from here to there, and wow.
Beyonce's "Single Ladies" video was originally a Bob Fosse joint too, you know.
Highly awesome. Just remember to give Fred Astaire credit for all the stuff that Fosse ripped from him.
I would liked to have heard the original sound track, but... damn.
that little hand-in-the-air thing at :51, definitely
