Philippino Prisoners Thriller Video

What do you do if you’re the prison warden at a high-security prison plagued by gang violence, where resumes feature crimes from shoplifting to murder? Prison chief Byron F. Garcia of the Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center in the Phillipines showed the world the power of thinking differently. You may remember this (we do, and think it’s well-worth a revival): 1,500 inmates created a choreographed music video of Michael Jackson’s Thriller, complete with zombies and the girlfriend role played by an openly gay prisoner. Take a look at 1,500 people in orange jumpsuits, effectively exiled from society, working in ensemble. (Image via Wapster on Flickr.)
