In an interview circulating online Bobby explains,
'Actually, I was the one that taught Michael how to do [the moonwalk].'We was all just dancin' ... we was poppin', he was watchin' us pop. He saw me do the moonwalk. And he was just like, "What is that?" And I did it again. He just watched it. And he just started doin' it.''The moonwalk was one of my signature moves. I had brought it up from down South. It was something that just killed the game once I brought it up the East Coast.'
