It’s a late Friday night in the Philippines. After a long day's work of breaking up fights, suppressing riots, and stopping gang rapes, the prison staff has gathered at a local bar for a night of fun and recreation. With the beer and liquor flowing freely, the following conversation ensues between the Warden and a few of the guards:

Warden: “Violence in the prison is just getting out of hand. We’ve got to figure out a way to keep the inmates from hurting each other. This is just unacceptable.”

Head Guard:”You know, you’re right boss. I had to break up 12 fights today. That’s just too much!”

Guard 1:”Hey! I’ve got a great idea! Now I know you’re going to call me crazy, but hear me out on this. What if we had all the prisoners dance to Michael Jackson’s Thriller?”

Everyone: “That’s a great idea!”

And thus the stage is set for the following video:

And just because I know some of you out there think this isn't real:

This is too funny. They do other songs too- I guess it encourages teamwork and cooperation?1?!
