Philippine inmates, dancing as punishment LOL

I’ve been posting a lot of videos lately, and I don’;t know if there’s a limit as to how many  we can post here, but I just can’t resist this. So, okay, this is a video of 1, 500 inmates in a maximum security prison in the Philippines. To keep them busy and out of trouble, the inmates are " forced " to dance as part of their , uhm, punishment " ? But then , when Michael Jackson died, they decided to dance to some of MJ’s songs. The guy who took the video put it out on you tube and suddenly became an instant hit, with over 4 million hits in a few days, especially after it was reported on CNN repeatedly.
 
The second video shows the inmates dancing to MJ again, but now, they dance with 3 of MJ’s choreographers who flew to the Philippines to teach the inmates MJ’s original dance moves in " This Is It! ".
 
So, watch and enjoy ! !

  1. I believe this prison is in Cebu. It’s just so sad that the management has decided to discontinue the “dancing inmates” project. there’s too much politics surrounding it according to the news 😦

  3. They could have made a good living in the dance industry rather than resort to crime.
