  Most people doing the Thriller dance-world record set by Michael Jackson fans
  NEW YORK, NY, USA -- Seventy-three zombies came to life inside Madame Tussauds’ in Times Square, nearby the wax figure of Michael Jackson-setting the world record for the most people doing the Thriller dance at the same time.

  In addition to promoting the wax museum tourist attraction, the record breaking was timed to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the Thriller album's release.

  When the video premiered in 1983, Jackson effectively transformed the role of music videos in an artist’s career. After the 14-minute video premiered in December, MTV began running it twice per hour due to the high demand from viewers.

   More of a short film than a traditional music video, the storyline, complex dance routine and special effects secured “Thriller” the honor of being arguably the most famous and recognizable music videos of all time.

  While Michael Jackson, now 50, will not appear at the anniversary celebration in New York, he told People magazine that his fans had his stamp of approval for their Halloween eve event.
  “I always thought Halloween and ‘Thriller’ fit each other like a glove,” Jackson said.   

  More Thriller dancers are set to open today's Village Halloween Parade.

   The previous record for the most people doing the Thriller dance at the same time was 62, set in Toronto in 2006.
