What To Do With That Damned Catchy Song

Okay, so we all know that I have been obsessing about a particular little pop song. Apparently, I’m not the only one who’s been fixating on it. (The friends CLH and I went out drinking with last night ALSO think it’s catchy). And this morning, as I watched the video for said song UH-GAIN, something came to me.

I have an idea for the inmates at Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center.

Wait. You don’t know about the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center? Go to YouTube right now and search for “prison” and “Thriller” (and try not to think of the implications of searching for an actual thriller in an actual prison.) Now watch the video of the reenactment of the Thriller video….by 100 or so prisoners in orange jumpsuits. ISN’T THAT AMAZING? And while you’re at it, check out the OTHER half dozen or so songs they have choreographed. I mean, have you ever seen such discipline, such attention to detail, from a bunch of, well… prisoners? I’m beginning to think their only crime was loving the dance too much…

Okay, so now that we know these guys can do the “Soulja Boy” moves like nobody’s business, I think it’s time we bumped it up a notch. I mean, they are clearly capable of dancing in formation, so it’s only natural that they take on the next great dance routine of our time. It’s the song on every one’s lips. It’s fun, it’s infectious, and even Andy Samberg has danced to it on national television. I think we all know where I’m going with this. That’s right. Those guys in the orange jumpsuits should roll up their pant legs, get themselves some ridiculously high heels, and re-enact the Single Ladies video.

Come on, fellas. Whaddya say? Put your hands up?
