Several thousand people dressed as zombies gathered in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle to try and break the Guinness World Record for “largest zombie gathering.” The thousands that participated then, naturally, performed Michael Jackson’s Thriller.

Several thousand people participated Friday July 3 in an attempt in Fremont to break the record for most people in a zombie walk, but officials at the Guinness Book of Records will need to verify signatures and pictures of people before announcing if the record was broken.
