Fans in Mexico City decided to make what would have been Michael Jackson's 51st birthday a real Thriller, by staging the world's largest "Thriller" dance on Saturday. Vying for a Guinness World Record, these 13,957 south-of-the-border stompers are an impressively large group.

But in terms of flair and choreography, they're no match for our personal faves: those 1,500 YouTube-famous Filipino prisoners. Check 'em out in their jumpsuits on the jump for old time's sake.
