YES. I love that move. I don't know when it got so big, but all of a sudden I've seen a lot of people attempting this move. I almost never see it done correctly though.
The key to this move is extremely quick turn and pivot. What you do is nudge the ball like you're going to pass it foward with your right heel. Then immediately turn the ball to your left with your toe. It's not really about your whole body, just turning on the ball quickly to turn it before the guy can kick you!
I've never seen a professional do it, but it's dead useful if you get it down. Just try it how you saw the guy doing it, but it's not really replicating it that will breed perfection. Just practice it in the way that works best for you. There are different ways to do most moves, just practise the method most effective for you.
