Cebu Inmates Dance To Jai Ho!

AR Rahman's Oscar winning song Jai Ho is continuing to make waves across the world.

In 2007, inmates of a maximum security Philippines prison became instant Internet sensations with a viral video of them dancing to Michael Jackson's Thriller. That video has generated over 32 million views on You Tube till now.

On May 30, 2009, over a thousand inmates of the Cebu Prevention, Detention and Rehabilitation Centre danced to the song Jai Ho from the movie Slumdog Millionaire. The dancing routine, a brainchild of Prison Chief Byron F. Garcia, is a means to exercise the minds and bodies of prisoners. No punishment this.

So much better than “Chakki peesing and peesing and peesing” in Indian jails!

The video on You Tube has already been viewed over 700,000 times. Watch it.
