MEXICO CITY (AP) - September 18, 2009
Jamie Panas of Guinness World Records says that 13,597 people
performed the dance routine on Aug. 29, which would have been
Jackson's 51st birthday.
The fans, many dressed as zombies, danced to "Thriller" in
Mexico City led by a Michael Jackson impersonator in sunglasses, a
sequined black jacket and white glove.
The previous record was held by a group of 242 students at the
College of William & Mary.
Panas confirmed the new record on Friday.
