The Filipino prisoners who practically broke the internets in half w/their hilarious rendition of the Thriller dance will be taking to the yard again in tribute. The performance will be held Saturday on the prison yard.

“Thriller”, a global hit on the Internet video site YouTube, shows 1,400 inmates wearing saffron prison uniforms performing their own version of one of Jackson’s most famous hits.

News of the megastar’s death at the age of 50, apparently from a cardiac arrest at his Los Angeles home, is weighing heavily on the prison dancers, the station said on its website.

Crisanto Niere, a balding, gap-toothed drug dealer who impersonated Jackson in the YouTube dance, “is sad his idol died,” the station quoted an unnamed prison official as saying. [SOURCE]
