Epic Fail: Times Square Thriller Beat by Texans, Others
We should have known: though this morning's mass Thriller dance at Madame Tussaud's did beat the posted Guinness World Record, ours was not the only city in competition, and the New York Times says 881 aspirants danced to the Michael Jackson song in Austin, Texas last weekend, presumably with their thumbs in their beltloops.

Well, at least fashionindie's photos make it look something like fun.
