Video Fridays: Zombies Can Dance

It seems only fitting, given my post on zombies earlier today, that this week’s Video Fridays installment should highlight what’s become a huge community event here in Bellingham: the annual Halloween Thriller Dance.

Each year, several months prior to the end of October, any and all Bellinghamsters are invited to attend classes to learn how to do the dance from Michael Jackson’s 1983 music video, which, of course, involved Michael dancing with, that’s right, zombies.

Then, on Halloween, at several locations in town, the show happens, if not in true, spontaneous flash mob fashion (locations are announced ahead of time), certainly in that spirit, and now thousands of people turn out for it each year.

Anyway, with Halloween just a few short weeks away, how about we get in the mood?
