Hundreds, maybe thousands of people in Mexico City are expected to dance Michael Jackson's "Thriller" on August 29, the King of Pop's birthday and also the day he is finally laid to rest. They're hoping to set a world record with the Facebook-organized event, to be held on the sloping plaza before the Monumento de la Revolución. But ... can they beat the Filipino prison inmates?
That guy in front in the shot above is Héctor Jackson, one of several Mexican MJ impersonators, during a rehearsal on Sunday. Check out more photos here, here, here, and here. And here is raw video that I shot.
Today, MJ fanatics got together again at Bellas Artes to further promote the happening.
* More later.
