The mega-hit album Thriller shattered records – and now it’s going for one more.

To get an early start celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Michael Jackson video (which debuted on MTV in December 1983), Jackson fans and impersonators will gather at Madame Tussauds wax museum in New York on Thursday to try to break the Guinness Book record of most people doing a simultaneous “Thriller” dance.

Jackson, himself, won’t make an appearance, but in a statement to PEOPLE he gives the Halloween eve event his stamp of approval: “I always thought Halloween and ‘Thriller’ fit each other like a glove.”
