The Onalaska Jaycees are taking part in an effort to thrill the world.

The group broke out into a flash mob dance of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" in Onalaska on Saturday.

It's part of a worldwide effort to set the record for the most people across the world dancing to the "Thriller" at the same time.

The Jaycees are also using the dance as a way to raise money for participants in La Crosse's Dancing with the stars.

All donations will be matched by the Jaycees.

Organizers say anyone who is willing to put in the work can take part in the dance.

"Anybody that is willing to learn the dance, there is specific 'Thrill the World' choreography and everything. You just have fun and it's definitely a workout," said Jaycees Executive Director Melisa Valencia.
