Dubstep extraordinaire pays tribute to MJ's "Beat It"

(CBS News) Michael Jackson may have been the undisputed King of Pop, but Marquese Scott may be a contender for the King of Cool. Now, I will be the first to admit that I don't totally understand the art of dubstep, but I do think it's pretty darn awesome. Check out Scott's "Beat It" tribute to MJ on his YouTube page above. It's remarkably impressive to say the very least.

So, did that brighten your return to work a day after the unofficial end of summer, or did it just make you want to beat it yourself and just get out and back to summer vacation? Regardless, this guy's moves have to put you in some sort of good mood. He makes his body move in ways you didn't think possible, so fluid, so rhythmic, and I'll say it again, so fricking cool.

Does this guy have joints? It doesn't seem so at times. No wonder the "Queen of Busting a Move" Ellen DeGeneres had him on her show. Check out the Atlanta dancer's performance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" below, as well as the bit of the clip that made him the Internet sensation he is today.
