The most amazing physical performance I've seen in I don't know how long

This is not the result of camera trickery, editing, or any other technological shenanigans — this is 100% human skill and talent (and, I'd guess, far more than 10,000 hours of practice).

As one of the commenters on the MetaFilter thread where I saw this said, "He pegs the uncanny valley with nothing more than movement." Another points out that at about 3:30, it looks like he gives up on the dance... but he doesn't.

And the move at 4:12 had me uttering an involuntary "Wah!"

Highly, HIGHLY recommended to watch in full-screen if possible.
