Michael Jackson stunned the dance world when he "debuted" his trademark "moonwalk" dance on the television special Motown 25th Anniversary Special.  The dance move gives the illusion of the dancer (Jackson) being pulled backward while he tries to walk forward.  It is one of the most difficult dance routines to maneuver.

But...this was not the first time we ever saw this.  I uncovered a great video of some extremely talented dancers down through the years doing variations of the moonwalk.  I don't know many of these guys (although I do recognize Fred Astaire and Sammy Davis, Jr.)  But their talent is nothing short of astonishing.  Enjoy this very entertaining video.
