The 500,000 or so expected for Sunday night's West Hollywood Halloween Carnaval was a ho-hum crowd number.

The real one for the history books was 8,239 — which Fox Home Entertainment claimed late Sunday was the world record–breaking number of people who danced to the the Rocky Horror Picture Show's “Time Warp” on Santa Monica Boulevard during the annual block party.


Fox stated it was indeed a Guinness World Record, beating the 4,446 who previously held the mark.

The record-breaker was held in observance of the 35th anniversary of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Fox airs the show Glee, which gave a boost to the dance and tune “Time Warp” in a season two episode.
