A “thriller” of a ride on London’s Tube

Its close to midnight and something evils lurking in the dark,
Under the moonlight you see a sight that almost stops your heart,
You try to scream but terror takes the sound before you make it,
You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes,
You’re paralyzed…

— Michael Jackson, lyrics to “Thriller”

Back in December we posted a video from New York City of a performance group called Pole-ite who demonstrated a little pole dancing on the subway. This week, we present a much more ambitious form of dance — a recreation of Michael Jackson’s video “Thriller” performed on a subway train of the London Underground.


  1. Awesome. This reminds me of the stage that is the London Tube. In 1996 I was riding the tube in London, and on one particularly long stretch between stops, a bloke pulled out his guitar and performed a fantastic accoustic rendition of Radiohead’s High and Dry. He wasn’t looking for money either, not busking for spare change. Rather he was performing for the art of it.

  2. I created THE POLE-ITE GIRLS! Video that you posted last month & I think the thriller crew is genius…. how can I find them… I’ll be in the UK soon shooting POLE-ITEGIRLS! LONDON & I’d love to connect with them. thanks- Isis
