Don't Stop 'til You Get Enough

As if 13,000 chilangos doing the "Thriller" dance in the Zocalo wasn't quite Mexican enough for you, it seems that just a few miles away, at the Ángel de la Independencia, over 3,000 people were doing the "Beat It" dance. It's kind of like the Sharks and the Jets, we suppose. No word yet whether there was a "Beat It" Dance World Record at stake. Needless to say, we're dispatching a team of roving choreographer/ correspondents to the scene, an will be bringing you word of any large group of Mexicans dancing to "Billie Jean," "Bad," or "The Way You Make Me Feel," as soon as we have it.

Meanwhile, in a textbook case of the conquistador getting whaled on by the conquistado, Barcelona held its own mass-"Thriller" dance yesterday. That is, if you consider a mere 700 people to be "mass."

They seemed to have a bigger wardrobe budget. Though it is Barcelona.

Is not that Barcelona had more budget in customs, this are homeless people promised a week in food stamps if they showed up and dance, so they look zombie like.
