Go here, here, and here for coverage of the "Thriller" spectacle that happened at the Monumento de la Revolucion on Saturday. The video above is by AFP, which says 12,937 dancers heeded the call of "Todos somos zombies" and followed the lead of Hector Jackson, Mexico's premier MJ impersonator.
Almost 13,000 danced but the city said as many as 50,000 people crowded the plaza and surrounding streets for the event. As for me, after watching two sing-along, swaying renditions of "Heal the World" as more and more people poured into the space, I decided I had MJ overload, and left.
But in case you missed it, I profiled Hector last week for The Faster Times, as he prepared for his biggest show yet. He's a true-blue hustling chilango. "I started liking his songs, I started investigating more, and it started as a game. Dancing like him," Hector said. "And what started out as a game is now a matter of work. A lot, a lot of work."
