'Thriller' Dance Clearly Already Existed In 1903 (PHOTO)

Judging from this photo, Victorian party-goers knew how to have fun -- and realized that the key to any great night is a great dance party. What they didn't know is that their "Cake Walk" dance looks suspiciously like the signature move from Michael Jackson's 1983 video for his hit "Thriller."

Reddit user jlking brought this 1903 photo to our attention and we are so grateful. We bet Jennifer Garner's character in "13 Going On 30" would be amused by this too.
