53-year-old Janitor Becomes Internet Star for Imitating Michael Jackson
A 53-year-old janitor working in the Shenyang Conservatory of Music sprang into the spotlight recently for imitating Michael Jackson’s dance moves.
Wang Shijin is now a silver-haired, skinny middle-aged man, who watched Jackson’s moonwalk on TV for the first time in 2010 and became obsessed with it. Since then, he hasn’t stopped mastering the moves.
But as there was no training hall for the janitor to practice dancing, he did it in the men’s bathroom where he has been working his whole life.
Because he had never taken any dance classes, Wang had to learn it the hard way. He first watched Jackson’s videos in bits and pieces, took very detailed notes and pinpointed each hand and leg movements. Then after eight months of painstaking practice, he finally completed the entire first dance routine.
