Zac Efron Moonwalks Like His Idol Michael Jackson (VIDEO)
Forget "Moves Like Jagger" — Zac Efron has the Moves Like Jackson! The 26-year-old hunk shared an Instagram video on February 7 in which he flawlessly executes Michael Jackson's signature moonwalk move. (See the footage below!)
In the physics-defying maneuver, the dancer appears to glide backward while stepping forward. Michael popularized the moonwalk in 1983, flaunting the move during a televised performance of "Billie Jean" in 1983.
And though his current movie is called That Awkward Moment, Zac is the epitome of smooth as he effortlessly slides on the cement floor of a cavernous interior space — some sort of new construction project? — despite being weighed down by duffel bag and a venti iced green tea.
He even flicks down his sunglasses as he walks away — to flash his baby blues at the cell phone camera.
Zac raved about the King of Pop in a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live — saying that he saves voicemails left on his cell phone by people he admires. "My most cherished is Michael Jackson," he told Jimmy. "He called me."
After a rough 2013, Zac told Us Weekly last month that he's "happier than ever" — and it shows!
