On the one hand boggles, especially considering the turn-around time. It's lovely.
On the other hand, the same thoughts come to mind the last time this group of prisoners were featured doing the Thriller dance. Prisoners, by definition, don't have a lot of say in what they are allowed to refuse to do. Prisoners are not the ones filming this thing. Prisoners are not uploading it to YouTube. I don't know how long they were working on the ITD piece, but mass choreography for this many people who are not in position to say No Thank You, to be learned, performed and filmed within a 10-hour window? Something's wiggy.
Lovely, but wiggy.
Who are the persons applauding in the background when the poster is revealed? Guards? Family members? Local officials and residents? There are a couple of places where you can hear a lot of general crowd buzzing in the background. As it doesn't appear any of the inmate performers are speaking, who are those people?
I'm bringing this one up at the next Roundtable.
