This happened last Saturday afternoon and I was there. In fact, I'm in the crowd there somewhere, dancing with the zombies. I, myself, was not a zombie so I stayed far in the back but if you spy a yellow duck or chicken on the right side of the screen ... just so you know, that is not me but since it is highly unlikely that you will be able to spot me, that will have to do. I guess you could say, I didn't dance with the zombies so much as with a yellow ducky.
(Here's another video where you might be able to spot me. As I said, I'm close to the duck. I'm wearing sunglasses and there's a whole lot of blonde hair flinging about.)
Thrill The World aims to be a worldwide event that takes place, annually, on the Saturday before Holloween. (I found the Portland group on Facebook.) Dances are performed simultaneously at 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. GMT. Seeing as 10 a.m. GMT would be 3 a.m. locally, I opted for the later time.
" This is a global community project that is inspiring others to break down barriers, connect with people of all religions, race, political and economic persuasions, contribute to helping humanity, and encourage people to step up as leaders, visionaries, and creators. "I don't know about all that but I can tell you it was a lot of fun. If you want to join me next year, you can find instructional videos are on their website plus a more detailed breakdown of the same steps on YouTube. (Use the link or search for INESSENS on YouTube.)
There's a rather awkward video of my participation here.
