Thousands Dance to “Thriller”

It would have made Michael proud: many in Mexico say that they broke the record for the most people dancing to “Thriller” together in one place. Thousands of people in black fedoras and white gloves convened in Mexico City on Saturday—on what would have been Jackson’s 51st birthday—to recreate the famous video, but whether they’ll go down in the record books is unclear. The Guinness Book of World Records will have to certify that every single person danced "Thriller" in its entirety. Said one proud dancer: “Mexico gave the best tribute in the world to Michael Jackson.”
