philippine prisons may not be so bad after all.

21 07 2007

i always thought prison was about lifting weights, stamping out license plates and hanging on to your soap in the shower. this video from cebu proves me wrong.

we’re talking a full-on recreation of the michael jackson’s thriller, complete with a dude dressed up to play the fair damsel in distress and inmates playing zombies. and who’s watching this? who’s being entertained by this? damn. i could write a paper on this video and the many layers of social symbolism contained within it!
