Sonisphere Festival bids to set Time Warp world record at Knebworth

A WORLD record attempt will take place in Knebworth this evening (Friday) at the Sonisphere Festival.

It’s just a jump to the left

And then a step to the right

With your hands on your hips

You bring your knees in tight

But it’s the pelvic thrust that really drives you insane

Let’s do the Time Warp again!
