Last month, thousands of Mexicans, including impersonator "Hector Jackson," performed Michael Jackson's "Thriller" dance with hopes of breaking the world record. While the success of the wannabe zombies is still under review by the Guinness Book of World Records, Mexico has already officially captured many records this year. The New York Times dedicated some reporting resources this week to the topic.
