Michael Jackson's "Thriller" 101: A Special Halloween GIF-torial

It's that time of year again: Dust off your fancy red leather jacket (we know you own one, don't lie), go heavy on the werewolf makeup and zombie strut to the nearest dance floor.

And if you're feeling shy because you haven't quite mastered Michael Jackson's "Thriller" shuffle, don't fret, we've got a beginner's course all prepped for you.

First, make sure the mood is right. We suggest around 10:30-11 p.m., after the spiked cider has been served but before that dude dressed as Captain Morgan starts force-feeding people shots.

Now, ease your way into it. We're not in a rush here. If you're recreating the whole 13 minute music video then you've got plenty of time to shine.

By now, you'll surely have been joined by a legion of your friends and fellow "Thriller" lovers. If you're solo at this point, you might want to abort. Unless you can handle the limelight solo. Who are we kidding? Of course you can! But the more, the merrier.
