Prison Shank: The Musical!

This is definitely one of the weirdest youtube videos I have ever seen. It is a performance of Thriller by the inmates at the Cebu Provincial Detention Center in Cebu, Phillippines. This is fascinating... I have watched this twice already, and I can't think of a possible scenario that would lead to something like this. Must have been a big job for the guy that's Michael to personally talk every single inmate into participating in his dance. What are the day-to-day goings on in a prison like this? I am kind of picturing a West Side Story-esque gang rivalry with a lot of synchronized walking and snapping, maybe some dancing knife fights. Holy shit this is the funniest thing I have ever seen.

at first, i thought they had also managed to get a woman in there, but i should have realized it was just a long-haired inmate in a halter top. amazing.

American prisons have gang rape, Filapino prisons have Thriller.

Do you think the guy that played Michael just had that idea pop in his head and went around asking everyone to be in his music video?

How does something like this happen?
