This Guy Made David Bowie Look More Awesome Than Normal In Labyrinth [VIDEO]

Before watching this video, bear in mind it could take David Bowie down a level of coolness for you. Who are we kidding, Bowie is on the Mount Everest of cool already, this shouldn’t make too much difference. It’s a behind-the-scenes look at one particular aspect of his role as Jareth the Goblin King in Labyrinth – his crystal balls. Listen as Jim Henson and Bowie discuss the real man behind the magic, a juggler named Michael Moschen.

    Pfft That was really unexpected XD. I remember rewinding this tape so much as a little girl that I eventually broke it ^^;.

    That full documentary is really good – watch for Gates “Dr Beverly Crusher” McFadden in it, she was the dance choreographer for the film! o/

    Two Labyrinth related posts in two days? I swear you guys are going to spoil me XD. I already saw this when I was younger on the DVD special features but am super glad that Labyrinth once again makes it’s way to the Mary Sue. Since it looks like there are Labyrinth fans over at Mary Sue HQ I highly recommend checking out the Girls Next Door comic by Pika-la-Cynique and Roommates by AsheRhyder on DeviantArt. Trust me, you’ll thank me ;D

    I spent many, many hours trying to do those tricks as a youth, back when I actually looked like David Bowie (it’s true! – Don’t get your hopes up though, he’s aged much better than I have.)

    Hurrah Labyrinth behind-the-scenes goodies! (Someday I will attempt a Jareth costume for Halloween. I think juggling will be out though…)

    Yeah, at first I thought Cheryl was a sister (red hair, same last name, and that similar of looks?), until I did an IMDB search and realized her full name was Cheryl Gates McFadden! I had a major geek-out moment, then. *lol*

    Michael Moschen (Motion) is awesome. I love when he is brought up. I have a great love of contact juggling but could never learn to do it properly.
