Thrill the World 2010

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to once again dress like a zombie and do the Thriller dance with hundreds of other crazy people downtown. Yes, it was time for Thrill The World 2010.

"Thrill The World" is a global attempt to break a Guinness World Record for simultaneously performing the routine from Michael Jackson’s video for “Thriller.” So for example, on the West Coast we did the dance at 4 pm. On the East Coast, it was 7 pm. In Europe, people got up at 1 a.m. to go dance Thriller in the streets. It's so cool knowing that people all around the world are doing the dance at exactly the same time! Last year there were over 23,000 people from 33 countries participating. They are trying to beat that record.

To add to the fun, it was raining the day we did the dance. Wet, soggy, but happy zombies!

Those 2 girls are in my college group and we learned the dance together. We had two other guys from the group taking pictures and video. I wanted to show you the video they took but it's in HD so it's too large to post on youtube. However, I hunted down another video someone took so you can see the dance. You can't see us (we're in the back) but it gives you an idea how it looked.

Can't wait till next year!
