Yet Another Reason I’m Proud to Live in the Philippines!

This is a great example of a constructive use of “exercise time” at the Cebu Prison in the Philippines.  You may be familiar with previous videos of Michael Jackson’s hits performed by these inmates that have circulated around the Youtube.  Not surprisingly, they just released a new video of MJ’s “This is It” to coincide with the release of the movie on DVD.

The big news with this one is that MJ’s choreographer and a few dancers came to the prison to teach them the choreography.  This video definitely takes it up a notch – seriously, they look professional (which is all the more impressive after finding out that they mastered it in 2 days).

Fun fact: 1500 inmates participated in its making.  I told you Filipinos loved to sing and dance…prisoners are no exception!

    I like the idea that they’re using their time productively and not getting into as much trouble. A friend posted it on FB, so I passed it along!
