    I can do pretty much everything else in the video but that.

    But still me trying to do the lean = fail and a nearly broken face and ankle.

    Ha, good luck, keep trying!
    Looks pretty difficult, how close/far were you from doing it?

    You can't do it because it's a special effect. The dancers who do it wear special shoes that allow them to bend like that.

    Yup, special effect. The "anti-gravity lean".
    Michael Jackson actually got the props patented in '93.
