jailhouse rock

So, I'll grant you its kinda cheap just to link to some YouTube video as a blogpost. I try not to do it too often, but occasionally I just gotta share. I don't know how I stumbled across these, but these are just plain whacked. Apparently the inmates at the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center in Cebu, Phillipines participate in choreographed dance numbers en masse. I couldn't find any definitive info to explain whether this is forced (like I'm sure they have much choice) or whether its some sort of exercise program. Regardless, the best of these is their re-enactment of Michael Jackson's "Thriller." And no, thats no woman. Almost as amusing is their version of "Hail Holy Queen" from Sister Act. I'm resisting using puns here, but you just gotta wonder about the warden. That, or wonder what the guys did to have to wear the nun habits. And if you can't get enough, see their version of Queen's "Radio GaGa."
