In 2007 they made a real performance of mass prison dance to a song of Michael Jackson's «Thriller». This video on You Tube collected 50 million of hits. It was a record.

Admittedly, a spectacle of prison dance when the 1,500 inmates dancing in unison, could’t not to produce a sensation on the Internet, especially considering the owner of an advertising campaign You Tube, on which all this is housed.

But when the prison dance video and creative photos came out in 2007, they became an instant hit, and many people and other prison directors were scratching their heads in bewilderment, wondering how Garcia achieved such results in his prisoners dancing Experiment.

Participants in the Philippine version of the show «Celebrity Big Brother» personally came to Cebu dancing inmates to share their skills and experience with this interesting project. Garcia said that it all was a part of the "revolutionary penology," although this was not a new concept. Jeremy Bentham made a circular prison in 1785 where the public could watch the imprisoned; moreover, inmates themselves were unaware of the fact that they were being watched. In the twenty-first century that function was perfectly replaced by You Tube. Some experts have criticized this Cebu dancing inmates method of recovery, while workers of Philippine prison claim that it is an ideal way to encourage prisoners to perfect both physically and morally.
