Donald Glover of Childish Gambino performs during the Austin City Limits Music Festival at Zilker Park on October 3, 2014 in Austin, Texas. 

Actor, writer, singer/rapper and now Childish Gambino is showing off yet another one of his talents.

In his video for "Sober," he puts his skills as a dancer at the forefront of the visual. Taken from his STN MTN / KAUAI mixtape, the clip follows Gambino as he attempts to woo a crush inside a chain restaurant. While he really can dance, it doesn't seem like it's enough for him to win the young lady over.

Not only does the video appear to have been inspired by the King of Pop, but so was the track. 

"It's Michael Jackson-esque," Gambino said about "Sober" in Sept. 2014.  "It's weird, because I never said that. I mean, we would hear it, but I was like, 'I can't say that.' Like, 'I did it just like the best performer ever.' I just wanted to have that feeling. I just don't think there's that feeling anymore. … Michael Jackson is just short-term for something that lasts a long time and you care about."
