It's been a few days since Halloween. Chances are you've vultured your leftover candy to the point where the only things left are pretzels and off-brand Skittles. Chances are your decorations are starting to clash with that overachiever's house down the street who already has Christmas lights up. Chances are you're still pretty tired of hearing Michael Jackson's "Thriller" everywhere you go.
If that last point is true, allow us this one last visit to the late King of Pop's zombie masterpiece.
Every year, some hockey team somewhere incorporates "Thriller" into an on-ice routine. These are the young stars of New South Wales Ice Hockey in Australia performing the "Thriller" dance — complete with moonwalk-on-skates.
Anyone else find it hilarious that this all appears to be happening during warm-ups?
That was pretty impressive — wish there was footage of the group zombie walk to the glass at the end, to fuel our "Walking Dead" nightmares — but perhaps you prefer the costumed whimsy of the Schweinekoteletts, performing the dance sequence from "Thriller" at the Glacier Ice Rink, Missoula, Mont., at a Halloween hockey tournament last year (dance featured in first 1:45):
Or perhaps you prefer something a little more elaborate.
Like, for example, the Calgary Flames holding a "Thriller" dance/flash mob between periods at a home game:
Everything was going so well … until Zombie Craig MacTavish showed up and ripped the tongue out of Zombie Harvey The Hound's mouth.
