Happy Monday everyone!  This week I'm sharing one of my favorite moments from Taika Waititi's Boy (2010).  The whole movie is absolutely fantastic if you haven't seen it, but the end credit sequence featuring that Michael Jackson's Thriller Haka set to the song Poi-E by Patea Maori Club is perfection.  Some background on the movie: it's set in 1984 New Zealand and follows an 11 year old Boy who thinks Michael Jackson is the coolest and is excited that his heroic dad has finally come home, but his dad (played by Taika Waititi himself) is actually an inept criminal who's only come back to find the bag of money he buried years ago.  Check out that end credit scene and the original 1982 music video of Poi-E below:
