This = possibly the best thing ever done with an anime opening song. Worth it even if you don't know the series in question, as testified to by the fact that I lol'd. The only thing that could have possibly made this better is if the same clips had been set to the Haruhi Dance.

It's improved even further once you realise how crackish the lyrics are.

...it's the crotch-grab at the beginning that really sells it.

Wow. I'm not even sure what to say about that. :P

I should think it is hilarious, I suppose, but every time I see Michael Jackson parodied I have conflicting feelings about it; yeah, he's strange, no doubt. There's been a lot of tabloid stuff and he's been accused of a lot. He's crazy flamboyant. But when I was really little, I had very strong reactions to stuff like Moonwalker and Captain EO. The choreography had a lot to do with it; I still think the stuff is genius, and much more interesting than most pop choreography today. In any case I had some reactions to his music as a child that were very primary (and had little to nothing to do with Jackson himself), and I value those, so...stuff like this, while funny, makes me feel kinda weird?

Oh, yeah, I personally am not one to buy into the rumours. I feel a lot of sympathy for the guy, to be honest; I can't imagine how horrible it must be to have your life dissected by the tabloids like that. He may or may not be a little unstable, but I don't think I have the right to judge based on what's put out there, and fame tends to do that to almost everyone to some degree.

I'm mostly amused by it because of the "wow, awesome crazy Western choreography that, let's face it, does look a little bit like the Haruhi Dance set to crazy Japanese song known for its dance" factor, rather than the "lol it's Michael Jackson!1!!" factor, if that helps? I kind of feel about it more like I feel about seeing things like that FF6/FMA mashup than anything: "these things are both cool and I recognise them and, yes, they work together very well".

Not knowing what the Haruhi dance is, I had to google it. ^^;

It does look similar. I can't help but think, though, that the similarities could actually be attributed to Michael Jackson's stuff anyway--the Japanese LOVE Michael Jackson. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the dances were directly inspired, or even indirectly inspired, by his choreography.
