There are many ways of scaring people, but apparently one surprisingly effective way of doing it is through dancing like Michael Jackson.

In a hilarious prank video, a guy dressed up as an old man takes to the street in order to scare people by busting a move.

Equipped with a very convincing mask and nimble legs like the King of Pop, he spontaneously starts dancing as pedestrians walk past.

The reactions of the people is priceless because most of them think that he is pulling off some sort of martial arts shit, but after a few seconds most of them realise that he is in fact getting jiggy to the sound of MJ in his headphones.
