A street performer has upstaged Michael Jackson with his signature dance move, the moonwalk. Eric Nash stunned passersby on 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica, California, with a unique version of the moonwalk, in comparison to which Jackson's pales.
It looks more like a movie trick, but it's real. Eric "TheCandyMan" Nash, 25, slides backward at a speed with surprising ease in the 21-second YouTube footage titled "SUPER MoonWalking."
The clip was posted to Nash's YouTube channel “OneLoveCandyMan," and has received more than 600,000 views. Viewers are stunned by what looks like a man defying the laws of physics.
Daily Mail reports a viewer exclaims: "Eat your heart out, MJ."
Another cried:"Somebody give that guy a medal."
According to The Blaze, BrettTheiPhone helped Nash with uploading his videos to YouTube. BrettTheiPhone comments: "You’re seeing the beginning of something great right here.”
