Get Down, Get Funky

I'm sure by now, you've all seen the Filipino Thriller Video that's been making the rounds. Well, CNN has a new "exclusive" clip of these same orange track suit-clad inmates boogie-ing down. This time, it's "Electric Dreams", a song I don't believe I've ever heard before this. While not on the same scale as the Thriller remake (oooh, if only the Bunnies do a 30 second version...), the amount of work required to get so many people all moving together (sort of, you'll notice a few people out of step if you watch closely) boggles the mind. Enjoy.

I have to wonder though if it's a good idea to give criminals sticks... especially since the accompanying article claims that many of them are rapists, murderers and drug dealers. Yikes!

what the story doesn't tell you is that the ones who were out of step were executed after the dance. tough love.

I think the sticks are to beat those that get out of step. The hardest part is getting an out of step stick holder to beat himself.

Am I the only one who can picture guards up in towers, aiming high-powered rifles and screaming "Dance! Dance for my pleasure, fools!"?
