MJ's Moonwalk

It's been 40 years since Michael Jackson "moonwalked" for the very first while performing his new song "Billie Jean" on national TV, but a cute bear cub did their very best MJ impression recently in Old Forge, New York - and we have video proof!

Derrica Stallone from Old Forge shared the video on a Facebook group called ADK/North Country Bear Sightings and naturally, wildlife enthusiasts like me ate it up!

Old Forge, NY

Stallone told us she has a camp in Old Forge, and that's where the adorable video was captured.

In the 8-second vid, you see a large mama bear hanging out with her feisty cub who, in an attempt to get mama's attention, stands up on its hind legs.

Tipsy Bear Cub

Unsure of his surroundings - and appearing a little bit tipsy - the little guy starts to stumble forward but catches himself.

Then, holding its paws out, the baby takes a few steps backward and appears to do a little dance that looks a lot like MJ's moonwalk.
