China’s Richest Man Jack Ma Pays Tribute to Michael Jackson at Alibaba Birthday Celebration


The billionaire is ‘Dangerous.’

Your move Jeff Bezos.

Jack Ma, China’s richest man and the CEO of the massive e-commerce to content giant Alibaba, often dubbed China’s Amazon, thrilled employees at his company’s 18th birthday celebration this week in Hangzhou with a special, and hugely impressive dance routine in tribute to Michael Jackson.

Ma, who has often spoken of his fondness for American culture, donned a Dangerous era Jackson outfit, riding on to the stage on a motorbike and then promptly wowed people with his Billie Jean routine.

If the site of a man worth almost $40 billion dressed as Michael Jackson gyrating suggestively wasn’t odd in itself, Ma also performed a magic trick on stage that David Copperfield would have been proud of.

This isn’t Ma’s first outlandish attempt to entertain his employees. In the past, he’s sung songs from the Lion King in fancy dress and often sings at company gatherings.
