'Thriller': The Prison Musical

Posted on

Forwarded to me by a friend (who apparently spotted it on Gawker): a YouTube clip showing the inmates of the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center in the Philippines putting their own orange-jumpsuited stamp on Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” video.  Ya gotta love the tube-topped “girl,” the “zombie” who casually rubs his nose (about 55 seconds in), and an enlightened warden with radical notions of “rehabilitation.” And while we’re on the topic, you might wanna check out this other, um, interpretation of Jacko’s ghoulish mini-epic.
