Prison Dancer: The Interactive Web Musical - Teaser Trailer
This video is funny and creative. There is a romantic notion that Filipino prisoners dance and perform Glee-like theatrical dance sequences, since the Thriller video came out in 2009. The video featured over a 1,000 prisoners dancing from a prison in Cebu, and received over 49 million viewers.
On my last trip to the Philippines I saw prisoners shackled together. Life is harsher for many people in the Philippines, and I am sure it's even harder in jail. Years ago I worked at a county jail in Maine, and there sure wasn't any dancing there.
