The Utube Blog study: Who’s the most popular presidential candidate on YouTube?

I will have the answer soon.

Performing “Thriller” in jail and on YouTube

August 12, 2007

News:  This video is a huge hit now on YouTube, with 4 million plus views.  It was taken from prison in the Philippines.  According to the write up, “1,500 plus CPDRC inmates of the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center, Cebu, Philippines at practice! This is not the final routine, and definitely not a punishment! just a teaser.”  The prison plans another YouTube video soon (here).

Analysis:  Seems like a novel way to get exercise in prison and build some community.  I wonder, though, if Michael Jackson gave copyright permission.  I would like to see them do “Walk It Out.”
