Can I use an external mic with the SX50? (read below)

I recently stumbled across a video of someone showing a micro USB to 3.5mm cable they used to plug in an external microphone.

The video didn't show him using the mic, though.

I want to use a newly acquired shotgun mic with my SX50, but before invest anything in setting up this rig I want to know if anyone has successfully connected an external mic to their SX50.

I'm not in a position to layout hundreds of bucks for another camera so I'm faced with doing what I can with what I have.

If you have any video samples (youtube, or otherwise) I'd be very interested in seeing it.

Thanks everyone for your help.
