You're not wrong, but you're not quite right either.
From c.1955, Mr Bill Bailey:
And this is Jeffrey Daniel, in his days as a member of Shalamar, representing the whole group and their hit A Night to Remember on Top of the Pops back in 1982. This performance was a year before Michael Jackson, one of Jeffrey's biggest fans, did the moonwalk on TV:
Jeffrey is still going and teaching! He hops off the couch at about 3:49:
But the moonwalk isn't just for cool guys:
Stupid old joke alert!
Several years ago, I entered your office determined to become an actor. You refused to represent me unless I changed my name, saying that although I was handsome and talented, no theatre would put my name on a marquee and I would never get work. I objected, saying my name had been proudly carried by men in my family for generations, and I stormed out of our meeting in a rage.
However, in the weeks following I reconsidered. After much reflection, I decided to heed your advice. Now I am a famous actor with many roles and known to millions worldwide. Having achieved this fame and fortune, it is often that I think back to my meeting with you and your insistence that I change my name.
I owe you a debt of gratitude, so please accept this check with my humble thanks, for it was your idea that I change my name from Coque Von Lesbian.
Very sincerely yours,
Dick Van Dyke
