Dancing Inmates - Michael Jackson's "This is It"
I've been watching Season One of "Oz" lately... which is probably why seeing thousands of inmates work together feels so satisfying. "Dancing Inmates: Thriller", the first chroegraphed video put out by the prisoners of the Philippenes' Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center has been viewed over 35 million times and turned the prison into a tourist attraction/merchandise seller. Sony caught wind and sent long-term Jackson choreographer Travis Payne to teach the prisoners "This is It'... and the results are electric; you can't help but be affected by hearing thousands of prisoners chant "All I want to say is that they don't really care about us."
