Houstonians attempt 'Thriller' dance record

HOUSTON Participants dressed up as zombies and performed the "Thriller" dance from the iconic Michael Jackson video over the weekend at Discovery Green Downtown.

Houston was one of hundreds of cities around the world, taking part in the effort to set a new record for the largest simultaneous performance of the song.

One of the organizers of the event in Houston said he got the idea from a student. The current world record for the largest "Thriller" dance is 882 people.
