As we finish up the second straight week of crazy nonstop Michael Jackson coverage, you might be thinking that there couldn’t possibly be anything left when it comes to honoring the recently departed icon. However, we’d like to turn your attention to one particularly charming tribute, Eternal Moonwalk.
Powered by Belgian radio station Studio Brussel (StuBru), Eternal Moonwalk has a simple concept: Anyone anywhere can send in a 10-second clip of them putting their own spin on the famed Moonwalk dance. There are a couple of specifications—everyone should be heading in the same direction, hands and feet should be visible—and then you, too, can be tied into a seamless international loop. It’s great fun to check out the dance move as interpreted by all ages in Turkish living rooms, English backyards, a kitchen in Rio de Janeiro or an office in upstate New York (someone in Tokyo—of course—submitted an animated robot). It’s a rather mesmerizing spectacle, with the number of meters moonwalked ticking upward as thousands of feet slide across the globe.
