THEY DID IT!
Thrill The World, which was started in 2006 by a Canadian dance instructor, Ines Markeljevic, has an accomplishment to be proud of-- and likely the beginning of a new annual event. People performing Michael's dance to Thriller at the same time around the world!
In 2008, 4,179 people attempted the record.
In 2009, 22,923 in 32 countries at 278 events. The event also serves as a fundraiser for charities. This year they raised $85,000 for 80 charities.
