Remembering Mr. Jackson with Some Funny Dancing

The recent death of Michael Jackson brought to THE FUTURIST!'s mind something he saw a long time ago. Steve Martin did a parody of the Billie Jean music video as the opening comedy bit on a Lorne Michaels produced comedy variety show from the early 80s. He searched YouTube and eureka!!

Searching YouTube is like eating European White Almonds ... you can't stop. THE FUTURIST! found this, as well; the prisoners of the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center, Cebu, Philippines perform Broadway style exercise routines in their prison yard. Complete with a male prisoner in drag, this performance is quite well choreographed for untrained felons. One wonders if they shiv each other in the showers to get the lead role in these outdoor productions. "I'm going out a multiple murderer ... but I'm coming back A STAR!"

Steve's got the moves. Bit tight around the crotch, though.

And if only those inmates used their powers for good!


Oh, that bit is funny. Very well accomplished.

And agree with your statement on the prisoners. Perhaps (when released into society again) they will turn to the cut throat world of musical theater and not cut throats.
