I was minding my own business over the weekend, reading the Denver Post while nursing a lovely cup of coffee, when I saw a blurb about prisoners in the Philippines doing the Thriller dance. Now, trust me when I say I had every intention of letting the Michael Jackson news fade away from Beckyland.
Alas, I was lying to myself. In my defense, I didn’t know that Filipino prisoners — and so many others — have created YouTube videos of the Thriller dance.
Take a look at these.
Filipino Prisoners Thriller … The only scary thing about this is the guy in drag playing the girl from the video.
Sobe Lizards Thriller …
Wedding Party Thriller …you wouldn’t believe how bridal parties choreograph the Thriller dance! Almost makes me want to get married again.
Bollywood Thriller … what they lack in expertise, they make up for in speed …
And it wouldn’t be BeckyLand if I didn’t have a Marching Band Thriller … always funny to see a marching band dance! Thrilling even! Skip ahead about 40 seconds or so.
World Record Thriller … that’s a lot of college zombies …
Toddler Thriller … if she had a little bit of gray hair, I’d swear it was me dancing.
Marine Thriller … truly secure in his manly military bearing.
Star Wars Thriller … sorry – I can’t stop!
Thriller Hungary … I think they wanted to show off their costumes for a bit because it doesn’t actually start till about 1:40
Flash Mob Thriller … two of my favorite things …
