A wrestler has taken the Michael Jackson classic ‘Beat It’ to a new extreme with his impersonation of the late singer.
While Jackson’s career is still soiled by the allegations laid against him, as a performer and musician, he remains a recognisable presence.
News18 reports that a compilation clip of the Brazilian impersonator and wrestler, Santana Jackson, garnered millions of views after it was shared on Twitter.
“In the clip, the wrestler, who has a stark resemblance with the late legendary singer, can also be seen sporting the King of Pop’s signature black attire. The video also shows the wrestler sporting the exact same hairstyle as the late singer,” News18 described.

One more for good measure:
The wrestler has paid impressive attention to detail, even down to the famous white glove worn by Jackson for his performances.
The moves exhibited by the wrestler also show the amount of meticulous preparation and research done when it comes to emulating Jackson’s signature dance style. Some of the wresting routines include the dedicated impersonator perfectly executing quintessential Jackson moves such as rising up onto his tip-toes, funky pigeon-toed poses and a flawless moonwalk.
Common among the many comments on the footage is the suggestion that the King of Pop never died – he just relocated to Brazil and started his wrestling career.
