Walking for Michael

Last night Yonge-Dundas Square filled up with hundreds of people celebrating the moves of the late King of Pop in the Moonwalk for Michael Jackson flashmob organized by the Urban Recreation Association Facebook group.
At first only a handful of people—surrounded by a tight throng of people waving cameras and cellphones—busted out the moves as “Billie Jean” came over the P.A. system. Gradually, though, as the music proved too infectious and the dancing too fly, the mood spread and all through the crowd people were emulating Jackson’s famous moves. The dancing even spread to the street.
