Filipino prisoners can’t dance.

June 28, 2009

I love Michael K. From I quote his blog below, and it is worth the 10 minutes to see this clip. It’s …surreally funny … I mean, you don’t know whether to laugh or laugh harder. Trust me. You’ll enjoy this.

This is serious. The inmates at Cebu Prison in the Philippines became world famous after their awesome version of “Thriller” hit the internet a couple of years ago. After they heard about the death of Michael Jackson on Thursday, they immediately stopped doing each other in the shower room and started rehearsing for a tribute dance to him.

They practiced late into the night on Friday just so they could debut it today. Their asses even have costumes and props! This is big budget! This makes me wants to dress as a nun and join in.

One of the inmates told The Associated Press that Michael Jackson “inspired us, so we are all sad about his death.”
