Move aside, Cebu prison’s dancing inmates; check out these smooth criminals.
The Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center’s orange-clad inmates became an internet sensation in 2007 when they performed Michael Jackson’s Thriller, but now, there’s a new dance group in town — the dancing inmates of the maximum security compound at New Bilibid Prison (NBP) in Muntinlupa City.
The official Facebook page of the Bureau of Corrections Public Information Office posted yesterday the video of the inmates dancing to K-pop girl group Momoland’s Bboom Bboom in line with the 24th National Correctional Consciousness Week.
And boy, did they nail it too.
They can be seen dancing the famous steps to Bboom Bboom but the prisoners also included their own choreography as well.
Over 400 inmates performed, GMA News’ Balitambayan reported.
The National Correctional Consciousness Week is held so that the public could see prisoners’ rehabilitation and reformation.
Netizens adored the video with over 5,000 views and 220 shares.
Facebook user Susan Gultiano de Paz wrote in Filipino: “They’re so good, like professional dancers. God bless all of [you] guys. Keep it up.”
“You guys got nothing on the [Muntinlupa New Bilibid Prison]…. hehehe,” wrote Onin Landincho.
“So good… [Good] job,” added Cynthia Clemente.
Ang OkiDoc ng Muntinlupa wrote: “This [performance] is on another level.”
