Some Thriller Awesomeness for Your Hump Day

Mexico_city_thriller A few weeks ago, I presented some Alexander Skarsgard goodies to help you get through the mid-week doldrums. I was thanked heartily by you fine readers.

Today, I'm hoping to do the same, though admittedly it's not so much in the eye candy arena as it is just plain awesome. And there's no shower scene involved.

However...

The above video is of thousands and thousands of people in Mexico City who attempted to break the world record for the largest number of people dancing to "Thriller" simultaneously. No word yet on whether they were successful. However, with a reported turnout of 13,957 people, I'd say that the effort is nothing less than mind-blowing, world record or no.

The event was led by Mexico's premier Michael Jackson impersonator, Hector Jackson, and choreographer Adolfo Chavez. The team led a rehearsal for the event early last week and the actual Thrill-off took place on Saturday, August 29th.

In addition to the event's participants, over 50,000 spectators turned out to witness the mass gyrations.

Similar events will be taking place all over the world as part of an effort by the group Thrill the World to continually set new records for Thriller uprisings. I think we may need to get on this, kids.

Impressive but I think the "Doe A Deer" one done in a train station was better.

I also meant to say, before my computer abducted my post...

Oh, GOD! I LOVED that one! I even got a little tear-y. It was just wonderful.

That was freaking awesome. It would be so delicious if all Mamapoppers everywhere agreed to do the Thriller Dance in their own livingrooms at a set time. No, we wouldn't beat the record because it could never be validated....but when you think about how much our families would laugh at us, we'd be bringing joy to MILLIONS of people. If you lead the way, I will follow.

I'm game!
