teenage-michael-jackson

in honor of seeing the upcoming michael jackson movie this is it on nov 1st.  this is the new music video from duck sauce [a collaboration between a-trak and armand van helden].

one of the reasons i’m obsessed with this video right now is because it is clearly based on the original performance of “dancing machine” by the jackson 5 (when michael jackson debuted the robot and his amazing backwards-leg-kick-thing).  duck sauce’s video has a distinct disco aesthetic, based on the entertainment shows of the 70s.  the sound is also reminiscent of the jackson 5, with the guitar chords and handclaps.
