The Dancing Prisoners of Cebu, Philippines

The last week typhoon that devastated Central Philippines including the island of Cebu has shown that most of the people in this planet have a kind heart as shown by aids and donation from more than a dozen countries of the World to the Philippines. This natural disaster also reminded me of the latest video of the Dancing Prisoners from Cebu. I am posting this to lift our spirits and just for a few minutes forget about the sufferings of the victims of typhoon Yolanda in Central Philippines. Enjoy this video.



This is the latest video of the Prisoners from the Cebu Detention and Rehabilitation Center in the Philippines. Just in case you did not remember, the prison inmates Thriller performance made it to the pages of Time—on the international magazine’s list of the most watchable Internet videos for 2007.

The inmates' interpretation of the Thriller music video was ranked the fifth of 10 "most popular viral videos" of the year, or the "Web clips we couldn’t stop watching". The list also included appearances by Hillary Clinton, Will Ferrell and Chris Crocker for his Leave Britney Alone! clip. Time described the convicts as "orange-jump-suited accused murderers, rapists and drug dealers", and noted that their performance was made in "homage" to Jackson's Thriller. The magazine stated that the viral video had been downloaded more than ten million times.
