The King of Pop is alive and well. He’s just taking some time off, driving a taxi in Minas Gerais, Brazil.

A video posted of a cab driver’s uncanny rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” has shot up in popularity since it was first posted on Sunday. And it’s clear why more than 300,000 people have watched — the impression is seriously phenomenal.

Just close your eyes while you’re listening — he sounds just like Jackson, aside from the pronunciation of some of the lyrics. (NewsFeed can’t blame him for that; he speaks Portuguese, after all.)
