A "Thriller" of a World Record

May 19, 2009

You may think you’re Michael Jackson’s biggest fan, but this is hard to top: On April 19, College of William and Mary senior Kevin Dua gathered 242 students–many of them wearing crazy zombie face paint and costumes–and broke the Guinness World Record for the most people simultaneously doing Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” dance in one location. (The previous record, in case you’re curious, was 147 people.) It took Kevin and his friends two hours to teach the dance to the crowd. Talk about a thrilling afternoon!
