Legendary mime Marcel Marceau died Saturday at age 84.

Michael Jackson borrowed his famous “moonwalk” from a Marceau sketch, “Walking Against the Wind.”

I tried to find video of that sketch but came up empty.

Update: Here’s some video of Marceau teaching wind walking to a class…and miming with Michael Jackson. (thx, andy & mike)

Update: Here’s a better video of Marceau doing his wind walk, from a Mel Brooks movie no less. (thx, manuel)
