This is old news, about 1 month old. But I’m a huge MJ fan so I had to post this. :)

Seventy-three Michael Jackson Thriller fans today broke the Guinness World Record for the most people doing the Thriller dance at the same at Madame Tussauds New York in Times Square. The previous Guinness World Record was sixty-two people.

Fans from near and far – including one participant from Columbus, Ohio – dressed as zombies and as the King of Pop himself to be a part of this history-making moment with Madame Tussauds wax figure of Michael Jackson at the center of the action. While Michael Jackson was not able to attend the event, he was thrilled with its success. I always thought Halloween and ‘Thriller’ fit each other like a glove,” said Jackson.

Prior to the record-breaking dance, participants took lessons on how to do the Thriller dance from Crunch fitness instructors, received zombie mini-makeovers and had the opportunity to take a photo with Madame Tussauds Michael Jackson wax figure.
