Thrillah in Manila

Well, not really Manila, but Cebu, a city south of the Philippines' capital. If you are a famed dance choreographer accused of mass murder, what would you do? What if you are surrounded by full blooded 'brothers' what would you do? How about this?

The dancers in the video or prisoners in the Cebu Detention and Rehabilitation Center in the Philippines. This video has been another one of those internet hits, garnering the youTube site over six million hits since it was first uploaded last April by Byron Garcia. The group of prisoners started the routine of mass dancing as a form of exercise and this is the result. If they can work this well together, at least it is for something entertaining for god forbid they get this organized to do something criminal. Now that would be scary. Several well known publications have even taken notice:

I'm waiting for the Dancing Queen video. :D
