Tribute to a King


Tribute to a King

That is what the title said and I could think of only two people who fitted that title (in the music fraternity)
The first one is Elvis Presley and the second , Michael Jackson (obviously)

Frankly speaking I liked him ( M J ) when he looked like this, simple and down to earth


I mean his performance on stage did not diminish whenever he put on his dancing shoes but his latest attire did put off many



Coming back to the blog post, I stumbled upon a puppet show by puppeteer Juan Jose Vargas who did an excellent job of creating all the moves that Michael Jackson did while dancing.

He created a perfect Michael Jackson Puppet and made him dance to the song “Blood on the Dance Floor”

It was amazing to watch the video (which is just for 3 minutes) with all the perfect leg and hip movements which was the trade mark of Michael Jackson.


He even tried the moon walk, but that was nowhere close to the moon walk that Michael Jackson did. I think we should give Juan Jose that much leeway, as the Moon Walk is not an art that every one can master. I have been trying it for the last two years, but can’t go more than two and half steps -  then the moon stops rotating for me (or does the moon rotate?)

This short movie was made in Mexico by Mauricio Vargas and shot with a Canon 5D Mark II
Hats off  to Mauricio and Juan and of course Michael Jackson. Long Live the King !
Have a look at the video yourself - click here (it may take some time for the video to appear and play, so one may have to exercise some patience)

Sad he's not around anymore. Great performer.

No one can take his place.
However, why these celebrities get carried away, I cannot understand. You are right he was good as he was, without all the plastic surgery he put himself through. It is really sad.

I didnt like him because of his later attire and changes.But when i watched the making of his final album,i realized how committed he was to music.

He was a brilliant artist and a performer. I grew up with his songs so they have a special place in my heart. RIP Michael Jackson.

The king of pop is an understatement indeed! I don't even know where to start with the moonwalk!

My moon walking leave much to be desired too but I do think MJ was very talented. Sad to have lost his life early and even sadder about the troubles surrounding the family and children.

Oh both such huge loses to the music world!

I always become sad when I think of him. He deserved better stuff than what he underwent!

Joy always,

Awesome video! What a talented twosome to create such an entertaining and fascinating piece.

And you're right about Michael; he is one of those who will live forever.
