Fred Astaire and Michael Jackson: Smooth Criminal

It’s a lazy Sunday over here, by which I mean that I am assiduously preparing to write 250 reviews in the coming months, so let’s all just relax and enjoy this: my favorite mash-up of all time. Jackson admired Astaire immensely, as anyone with a whit of sense does, and the original video for “Smooth Criminal” is obviously influenced by the “Girl Hunt Ballet.” Some brilliant YouTube user – not me, you understand; go to the page itself to give credit where credit is due – put Fred and Cyd Charisse’s dancing with Michael’s singing, and I think the results are fabulous. Hope you agree.
