no smooth criminal lean?

  • on: February 27, 2010, 06:25:01 AM
ok, so i've just been watching my TII dvd for the 3rd time, and it struck me.....
in all the rehearsals they never practiced the "lean" in smooth criminal??
Now, as if MJ wouldn't include this seeing as he patented the boot to be able to do the lean live, and as if the dancers wouldn't have to practice this in the routine, on the stage???
Discuss, everyone.......

all for L.O.V.E

there is a short moonwalk together with the dancers in the smooth criminal-bit. let's look out for the lean. michael had that patented, anyone doing that now these days somewhere? they would have to have permission from michael to do it!

evrything turns into a clue these days...(*sigh*)... :roll:  things seem to be just piling up these days, especially with everybody watching the dvd now and finally noticing everything that was discussed for months...no more guessing, you can stop and look at it over and over again!

this is the line that really hit me in the stomach!

'...it's a story about escapism...'   :shock:  :shock:  :shock:

he says that at the end of the movie when he speaks to the crew.  :mrgreen:

thx for that, didn't know that. although it's a tabloid source, that might be reliable info. patents do run out...funny he didn't extend that...but i guess he was preoccupied, since that was the year of the trial, too. or someone in his office wasn't paying attention.

I don't think that "USA Today" is considered a tabloid but regardless, I have read that the patent ran out in several places.  If you look around the web you can find the info.

sounds like a great opener for a comeback:

like this: 'mike, why did you fake your death?'
then mike goes: 'cuz i'm baaaddd!!!'   :lol: and the songs goes off!

maybe that't why it's not on there. kept as a 'surprise'... :mrgreen:

I was wondering that too. You would imagine that the dancers particulary, but MJ too, need a lot of rehersal with the boots to do the lean, because it seems like it's not something you put on and learn how to manage right away. Considering that they even have to hook it to the stage and I think it's something you really have to master months before the show.

Michael didn't do the lean because he didn't have his specail patent shoes to do the lean.neither did his dancers. Michael does not do the moonwalk for Billie jean during the rehearsal,He was the same way with the History rehearsals.
