This is way cool!
We did this for the news this morning: Michael Jackson’s longtime choreographer Travis Payne and dancers Daniel Celebre and Dres Reid paid a visit to the Philippines to teach the inmates routines to be featured in the DVD release of the late King of Pop’s “This Is It.” The Cebu dancing inmates first became an online sensation with their rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”. What started out as an experiment, became one of YouTube’s most popular, making many top viral videos of all time lists. The Cebu inmates did countless other songs, but they never quite matched the success of their first hit, Jackson’s “Thriller”. So it’s just fitting that they would end up as part of the DVD release of MJ’s swan song, the unexpected box-office hit, the movie of his patched together rehearsal footage, “This Is It”.
