Tenacious D rocker Jack Black mocked Michael Jackson's embarrassing moment at last year's (02) MTV Video Music Awards by taking to the stage at last night's (28AUG03) ceremony dressed as the KING OF POP.

The SHALLOW HAL star wore a replica of the outfit Jacko wore a year ago, down to the metal shinpads he sported, and even attempted a moonwalk, but fell over.

Introduced as "one of the funniest people I know" by rocker Fred Durst, Black further mocked Jackson by giving an acceptance speech for an award he didn't win - just like the KING OF POP did last year (02).

Back then, Jacko gave an odd speech thanking illusionist David Blaine and James Brown among others.

Emulating the speech, Black said, "If someone had told me when I was a little kid that I was gonna win the super genius of the universe award, I'd have said, 'No way, you're crazy,' and I won it.

"I want to say David Blaine, your magic is real and I believe in you, PRESIDENT CLINTON, your friendship is astonishing."
