cebu inmates are "dangerous"

The Cebu inmates are back with their latest tribute to Michael Jackson, an elaborately choreographed rendition of "Dangerous." Behold, as these crime-hardened prisoners show you who's bad... with dance!

Ever since the original "Thriller" video that made these prisoners an international YouTube sensation, I've always wondered... how do they determine which inmates get to be the featured dancers in black? Is there an audition process? Call backs? And most importantly, who gets to be Michael?

There's a movie in this, somewhere: the story of a new inmate -- a troubled, but gifted young dancer -- who rises up among the ranks to become the top dancer at Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Centre. Dare to dream.
