Thriller

File under: WTF?

Inmates at a Phillipines prison are... taught? forced? to perform Michael Jackson's "Thriller".

R.I.P., Michael.

Do you think it will be a Family gone show over his Estate?

I have to admit I was looking forward to see how his concerts would have done.

Poor Farah's story gets lost in the shuffle.

Happy Friday

The 'woman' in this video has male pattern baldness.

Jennifer said...

Interesting...

Henley on the Horn said...

Wow. That is just about all I can say. Wow.

Sarah said...

Amazing!!

A Wedding Story said...

Oh dear. Kind of scary!!

Miss Yvonne said...

They should make inmates do this in our country...only instead of Thriller, make them do Bye Bye Bye by 'Nsync. That would be torture at it's finest.

I Am Boymom said...

Laughing at Yvonne's comment! I wonder if there were auditions for the "chick" role...

Frau said...

Okay that was scary, I think the girl if it was even a girl, had balding from the end when they were pulling at her hair maybe one too many rehersals!!

Nic said...

Very, very weird.

Steam Me Up, Kid said...

It's hard to imagine that they were forced when the "woman" in this routine looks like she's enjoying it so much. Especially the zombie beat-down at the end. Like, "Oh no! Zombies! Help! No, don't stop! Bite me here!"

Swirl Girl said...

better than a shiv in the kidney!

BacktoBarnwell said...

What type of weirdos are the wardens? I mean, the story behind this performance would really be quite interesting...

Maybe we should make it a requirement to be an elected member of congress, we the people want at least 1 choreographed hit performed by the congress on the steps of the Capitol Blding. I'd give a left nut to see Nancy Pelosi do the soulja boy dance.

Gina said...

Wow. That was funny! What better life skill for the prisoners to learn than choreography. They can go on Broadway when they are released into the real world. Great.

Annie from N.H. said...

Why?...I just want to know why!
...maybe it's some sort of psychological therapy for the prisoners, getting them to "work together, to communicate." Yeah, that's it, bettering the prison community, gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling.

They gotta teach them SOMETHING in prison, right?

Michelle said...

I was just telling my husband yesterday about this video. Now I could show it to him.

Bernard Madoff, the mastermind behind the largest and most sweeping Ponzi scheme ever, just sentenced to 150 years in prison.

I wonder if he can do the Moon Walk?

He certainly may get grabbed by the crotch!

Diane J. said...

Maybe they were trying to garner some press and promised early releases to all who participated.=)

Just stumbled across your blog. Love the last post 'Give a Mom a Cookie' thanks for the laugh.

Brittany said...

My favorite part was the man in drag...how can he look hotter in butt tight jeans than me!?

Lisa-licious said...

Those aren't prisoners, they're the winning dance troupe from the TV hit "The Phillipines Got Talent"! That Ola Ray wanna-be best be gettin' "her" some Rogaine!

At least they aren't on the streets dealing illegal dance moves to kids...

Teresa said...

That's awesome! Mostly b/c I have it memorized, too, and know they're doing it right :) RIP MJ.
