August 29th would have been The King of Pop's 54th birthday. To celebrate his legacy of astonishing dance and movement, we thought we'd offer up some cool Michael Jackson animated GIFs. Seriously, why would you look at MJ not moving, when you could look at him moving? One option is clearly much more entertaining than the other (the second one).

Animated gifs obviously do MJ greater justice, so we rounded up a bunch of them and stuck 'em all together here. Feel free to take a break while viewing them to gaze off into the distance wistfully. It's probably going to happen anyway.
