Over the last month or so, it has become pretty clear that Michael Jackson is an important figure in the world of professional soccer. Why? I really couldn’t tell you. First, we showed you this strange statue that was unveiled outside Fulham FC’s College Stadium, apparently because Fulman’s owner was friends with the King of Pop. It didn’t stop there. When AC Milan won the Italian soccer title on Saturday, M.J. made his way into their celebration in a big way. Check out the Kevin Prince Boateng Michael Jackson dance video, courtesy of Deadspin:
Does it make sense? Not really. Is it a tremendous Michael Jackson impersonation? I don’t think you can really argue that it isn’t. That moonwalk is pretty legit. Props to Boateng (I guess?).
