Convicts in Philippines show off Gangnam style in video
Inmates at a Philippine prison who became famous for dancing to Michael Jackson’s songs have made a new video - of the South Korean smash hit ‘Gangnam Style’.
Prison authorities posted the video, from the facility in Cebu, on YouTube. It shows about 1,000 inmates clad in orange uniforms doing the horse-riding dance made famous by rapper Psy. The lead dancer in the centre wore black and mimicked the artist, whose song has become a No. 1 hit.
The video comes just days after the ‘Gangnam Style’ craze also reached Thailand’s navy.
In a separate video posted to YouTube, a few dozen smiling sailors from the Third Naval Area Command perform the rodeo-style dance and other hip-shaking moves at their base on the popular tourist island of Phuket.
Lt Cmdr Patiroop Khemtis said officers took three days to film and edit the video, instructing participants to mimic the moves in Psy’s original video.
It was shown at the base’s annual party and posted on YouTube the next day.
The video shows white-uniformed sailors in sunglasses galloping through their offices and officers in scuba gear shimmying up the beach.
