17Very Important World Record Broken

No, don’t worry. Nobody won more than eight Olympic golds during one Olympics. That honor still belongs to Michael Phelps and his size 14 penis.

Rather, students at William & Mary College have broken the record for the most people to dance to the singer’s “Thriller” simultaneously in one place. The 242-person routine was organized by longtime Jackson fan Kevin Dua, who was notified Friday by Guinness World Records of the accomplishment. The previous record was 147 people in an event held last summer at a British secondary school.

Dua, 21, spent the better part of the school year orchestrating the event, which was held April 19. “I’ve been a Michael Jackson fan since I was 5 years old. It was something I grew up around,” Dua said Friday in an interview.

Well. Now I know what I’m doing with my summer. I’m going to need 243 people, a boom box, and a whole lot of beer. Who’s in?
