Video of the Day: Prisoners Reenact "Thriller"

It's the hottest clip of the moment: an estimated 1,500 inmates at the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center in the Philippines performing the iconic choreography to Michael Jackson's "Thriller" in total lockstep. (And that's to say nothing of the guy who dressed up to portray the role of Ola Ray.)

Not much is known about how or why this performance was organized, but taken at face value, it's pretty amazing.

This inhabits that special space between HOT MESS and FRIGGIN AWESOME. And please -- the Ola Raye guy has a ponytail AND is balding. I love it.
