Remember the Filipino prisoners that danced to Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ a few years ago? Upon the news of Michael Jackson’s death, the group created a 10-minute tribute to the King of Pop that is every bit as epic as MJ deserves.

The Filipino prisoners danced to songs from throughout Michael Jackson’s career, from "Ben" and "I’ll Be There" to "We Are the World." As is fitting considering the occasion, the music selected and choreography chosen were far more subdued and reverent than previous recordings.
