The Moonwalk Mating Dance

Image credit: 

I've seen guys attract women by doing Michael Jackson moonwalks in clubs, but I had no idea the dance-move worked on chicks across the Animal Kingdom. The bird in this video (the winged one) is a Central American species known as the Red-Capped Manakin, and man, can it move! Personally, I think the bird needs to lose the human, and take his solo show on the road, but that's just one man's opinion. Video via the ever-amusing ettf.
