The Portsmouth, New Hampshire Halloween parade is featuring a dancing mob of zombies this year. No matter what you think of the dearly departed Michael Jackson, you like Thriller. It’s one of my tested theories. Everyone likes Thriller. If you tell me you don’t, you’re lying. That’s all there is to it. It also somehow warms my heart that people will plan these sudden gatherings just to baffle everyone around them and dance. On the flipside, MC Hammer’s U Can’t Touch This routine has been getting the flashmob treatment lately as well. So in honor of this haunted Halloween, the Portsmouth Thriller Dancers and the fact that I’m scraping the bottom of the barrel for festive Halloween posts, here’s a collection of other noteworthy Thriller flashmobs and the original video, directed by John Landis.
