To all fans who truly love MJ, we issue a call:

July 12th 17:00-17:01, within this minute, all fans use their own action to complete MJ’s unfinished dance. 17:00 sharp, the music will begin and during this time, no matter if you where you are, please stop where you’re going, come together, and in accordance with the pre-arranged action sequence, display MJ’s classic poses…and finally, we will end this action with the moonwalk. MJ spent his life to give us uncountable legends, so let us walk together, and let the legends continue!

The detailed dance moves will be publicly announced shortly, refer to the “This is it, not the end” MJ memorial video created by Wooyeah, please stay tuned.

Why only one minute?
In one minute, you probably couldn’t finish an ice cream.
It may not be longer than the time it takes to wash your face.
You may not even have finished hearing the intro for a song.
But within the span of one minute,
Madison was born,
Shenzhou 7 blasted off,
Liu Xiang completed his hurdles dream.
It is because classics are brief that they are precious, the brief everlasting.
If you are a fan of MJ, you will always remember this minute.
There are uncountable minutes in a person’s life, but we only have one MJ.

Are there requirements for dress?

Dress as you wish, as you would on any day that you have thought of MJ, express yourself and not deliberately.

What if it rains?

Continue as usual, unless it rains @@@@@@!

Special Reminder:

  • One minute is short, be sure to arrive five minutes before.
  • Cherish life, safety first.
