Michael Jackson's Smooth Criminal Forward Leaning Trick

The video below shows what will happen if the forward leaning anti gravity trick does not go smoothly. Forward leaning anti gravity dance trick is Michael Jackson's creation and is patented.

So how does this anti gravity trick works? According to gizmodo,

Trying to lean beyond one's center of gravity normally leads to a giant, awkward step forward to retain balance, so to achieve the 45-degree angle he wanted, Michael and his dancers used special shoes as well as a trick in the stage floor. When the time came for the move, a peg-like aperture would protrude from the dance floor. The heel of the dancers' shoes featured a triangular cut out that could be hitched onto the peg, anchoring the dancers to lean much farther forward, and thus blowing the world's collective mind.
