How'd he do it?

We all know that Michael Jackson was a beast. One of the tricks he had up his sleve was the smooth criminal move, when he and other dancers would lean past 45 degrees and not fall over. I remember as a kid trying and falling a few times, and watching the videos and looking for lines or some way they would hold them up. Then seeing it done live I couldn't believe it could be done in a concert. If you watch this video you can see a clue as to how its done if you watch the foot of the guy on the right (if you dont want to sit through the awesomeness fast forward to 3:50ish).

If you want to see how its done click here to read how its done, unless you want to keep the illusion alive, its pretty ingenious.
