Remember that YouTube video of the prisoners at the Philippine prison who recreated Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” video?
Well, they are just as heart-broken as the rest of us at the news of his death.
“My heart is heavy because my idol died,” said Byron Garcia, security consultant at a Philippine prison who organized the famous video of 1,500 inmates doing a synchronized dance to “Thriller.”
The video has had 23.6 million hits on YouTube; lots of people looking at it since Thursday night.
Garcia said the inmates in Cebu will hold a tribute for Jackson on Saturday with their “Thriller” dance and a minute of prayer.
