Thrill the World — For the Win!

Ever thought to yourself, "Self, I'd like to perform an iconic zombie dance with a mob of strangers at the same time everyone else in the world is doing it and break world records?" Well, today is your lucky day!

Allow me to introduce you to Thrill the World, a movement (so to speak, ha ha) in which mobs of people dressed as zombies will gather together at the same time today, Saturday October 27, 2007 to dance the "Thriller" dance — that is, the dance featured in Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video. The project is technically "a worldwide attempt to break the Guinness World Record (GWR) for the largest simultaneous dance."

Here in San Francisco the record-breaking dance will take place in Delores Park at 3:00 PM. In D.C. they're making a real night of it, called the DC Zombie Lurch and starting off with the dance at the Washington Monument at 6:00 PM followed by a group trek to Club Midnight.

For a full list of all the places taking part in this momentous occasion, check out the "Plan" section of the Thrill the World website. There are plans to meet up in all sorts of places, including Croatia, France, Honduras, Ireland, Sweden and New Zealand, among others.

Here's the best part: In case you don't know the dance by heart, instructional videos are provided. So you have no real excuse — put on some rags and go be a part of history! Why? 'Cause this is Thriller, Thriller Night!

This video scares the beegeesus out of me. I will not be parcipating in the festivities! That's my worst nightmare to have a bunch of dead people raise from the dead and start dancing together on routine.
