Default Did Anyone "Thrill the World today"?

We participated in the Thrill The World event down at the Long Center today. It's an annual worldwide simultaneous dance of Michael Jackson's “Thriller.”

What. A. Blast.

Austin now owns the World's Record as the single largest synchronized Thriller dance group. Almost 900 people dressed in Zombie garb showed up for this...totally awesome. Here's a couple of pics from the run-through but there were professionals their the whole time taking video and photos, so this thing will be everywhere.

I don't think this happened in Pittsburgh. If it did, it wasn't well advertised. It looks like it was a blast! I was looking to see if I could see Twange and Mrs.Twange in the pics but I can't find you

BTW Twange, CONGRATS to your win over the current SB champs! We play them this week--I'm picking the Steelers by a field goal.
