William & Mary Breaks “Thriller” Dance Record

Student from Alexandria organizes record-breaking "Thriller" performance

RICHMOND, Va. -- How about this for a thrill? A group of students at the College of William & Mary has set the world record for the most people gathered to dance Michael Jackson's "Thriller" simultaneously in one place.

Longtime Jackson superfan Kevin Dua was notified by Guinness World Records Friday morning that he and his group of 242 people broke the previous world record of "Thriller" performed by 147 people.

Dua spent the better part of the past year orchestrating the April 19 performance, William & Mary officials said.

The senior from Alexandria will graduate this weekend. Wonder when he had time to study.
