Hello! I attended a bachlorette party last night. If you are a male that was in downtown Nashville last night. Did you get pinched, poked, prodded, groped, tickled, slapped, and possibly maimed by a group of women with bunny ears and grass skirts? Well, that wasn’t us. So, I’m a little slow today and needed an easy post.

I have decided to teach you the Thriller Dance. Those of you who do not know what “Thriller” is, well, you should know. Only one of the best songs Michael Jackson had ever recorded. It is a novelty song and the video (14 minutes of awesomeness) was inspired by 1950’s horror flicks. I couldn’t find a playback for my blog but you can see the full video here.

This is pretty cool too! You more than get the Thriller effects:
This is the best video tutorial I have found:
I love how the music and instructions are all rolled in one. Really cool. Not everyone has mad dancing skills like I do, so it might take you a few watches to get it down. This next one breaks it down slowly.

Sweet… you’ll be monster jamming in no time.
