Prison Thriller

Filipino prisoners perform their version of Michael Jackson’s Thriller:

Description: “1,500 plus CPDRC inmates of the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center, Cebu, Philippines at practice…” Over 1/2 a million views since posting 5 days ago. Nearly 1000 comments as of my visit with a wide range of reactions from “good on them” to “this is what taxes fund/this is rehabilitation?” to “should do more time for this.” My reaction: creepy on different levels mostly due to the context. Not just the orange suit-zombie conformance, but the suggested gang rape-event that must have been present in the Jackson video but I missed it outside of this context. Also, in a way, uplifting to see the political message expressed through a collaborative piece.
