How to Do the Robot like Michael Jackson

Learn how to do the robot like Michael Jackson in this Howcast dance video featuring dancer Robert Taylor, Jr.


All right you guys, we are getting into the MJ Robot. He has quite a few different robot styles, and he goes on with, there's Dance Machine, there's Billie Jean, there's Human Nature, there's Working Day and Night, but we're going into two of my favorites, which are the robot from Bille Jean 1996 MTV Music Awards. And we're going to get into Human Nature 1993 Bucharest concert, ooh hoo, yeah. So let's do the first, which will be the Billie Jean.

So we have a tick, his ticking robot. What's happening is you're going to, this is your motion in without the robot, this is your motion. So we're pretty much walking with our hands on the belt, or whatever you have that you're wearing, mm-hmm. Now what you want to do is tick each part that you're doing. You can tick, what you want to do is tick every part of your body, even if it's your shoulders, your feet, and the head. So with that in mind, you're going to go pick up, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, and place, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, pick up, tick, tick, tick, keep ticking as much as you can, tick, tick, a tick-torial, ooh hoo, tick, tick.

Now we're going to do the Human Nature Robot. So he starts out here, he brings his legs in and out, he grabs, like he puts his hand on the wall, puts his hand on another wall, and he looks like he grabs the wall, pushes. So, you want to bend those legs, place one hand on the wall, place another hand on the wall, and when you place the hands on the wall, lock your arms, soot, soot, so you have, shoot, shoot, and then you're going to pretend your hands are stuck on that wall. And when you push, lock, shoot, you see what's happening there?

So you have phewt, shoot, shoot, shoot, and then he turns, and then he goes kick, kick. So you have, robot, robot, woot, tribble, poom, and then you want to turn, and then you're going to fade out with the shoulders.
