PHOTO: Glee Goes Gruesome for 'Thriller'
Get a sneak peek of the episode featuring the Michael Jackson classic and set to air after the Super Bowl
Costumed and covered in gruesome zombie makeup, the Glee cast is hardly recognizable as they gnash their teeth and perform a jerky dance across a football field for the big Feb. 6 post-Super Bowl extravaganza.
Joined by sexy blue-haired cheerleaders, the group will take on the Michael Jackson’s classic “Thriller” video as a mashup with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’s “Heads Will Roll.”
The episode, at between $3 and $5 million the most expensive to date, will focus on the growing tension between the Glee club and the football team.
“You can never re-create something as incredible as ‘Thriller,’ ” Lea Michele tells Entertainment Weekly. “We’re making it our own.”
