Dancers in 80 cities spanning 17 countries joined together in spirit to at 3 p.m. Pacific Standard Time Saturday for one of the largest choreographed dances ever seen, The Orange County (Calif.) Register reported.

"I've never done any kind of choreographed dance like this, and it's so much fun," said Christopher Clark, a graphic designer and artist. "I dig that it's a global, international event. I think it's really cool that everybody all over the world can get together and do something totally crazy like this. And nobody's killing anybody."

The Irvine "Thrill the World" event was organized by residents Tom Nguyen and dance instructor Jeremy Heckman after hearing that Toronto dance instructor Ines Markeljevic was trying for the world record for "Largest Simultaneous Thriller Dance."
