Oh my gosh, Nicole, Noell and I rented the Thriller video back in the 80s and played that thing a thousand times until we memorized that dance. The first time I saw that Jennifer Garner movie, "13 Going on 30" and that scene where she busts out and does the Thriller dance at that party, I about died, I was blushing and laughing so hard, I didn't know anyone else had done that!?
