With less than one hour notice, I rushed off this afternoon to join a few people in practicing the Thriller dance on the beach at Dockweiler State Park.
Yes, you heard me.Â Thriller. On the beach.
I am joining the Los Angeles group in Thrill the World 2008 where folks gather in full make up and costume to dance to Michael Jackson’s Thriller at the exact same time all over the world.
For LA it’s Saturday October 25 at 11 a.m.
I saw the video last year and have always wanted to do it.Â Finally here’s my chance!The LA group is trying to break the record of having 200 people at the event.Â The Irvine one is closer, but I’m all about breaking records so I will be joining the crew to the north.Â Still, I’m hoping to be able to practice with the south crew so I don’t have to drive too far.Â We shall see!
There might just be an event in your neighborhood, so check out the World Event section.
Thailand hasn’t signed up for an official event yet.Â It’ll be Sunday, October 26 at 1 a.m.Â But I’m sure someone is going to start it up.Â (I’m so sending this to Kitty’s magazine!)Â Can’t you just see a herd of zombies doing this down Kao San?
No, those in yellow shirts at the Government House doesn’t count.Â That said, it would be a lot better for everyone if instead of stirring shit up, they would learn to do the dance instead.Â But I digress.
OMG. SO AWESOME! I wanna do it, I would if I still lived there!!!!! Maybe I’ll be back by next year’s thriller dance-a-thon!
