The Many Shades Of Thriller

On August 29th I had the supreme pleasure of catching the Monsters of Accordion tour as it made its way through San Francisco. As if the concert weren't enough, at the end Jason Webley, Eric Stern, Geoff Berner, Mark Growden, and Stephen Iancu all came up to play Thriller as an encore. This video is from Seattle, but the show I was at can be partially seen here.

All of which was pretty awesome, but reminded me of some other Thriller videos. Apparently, prisoners in the Phillipines perform the choreographed dance as a way to exercise. As far as I know, the woman fleeing in terror is actually a male prisoner in 'costume'.

Though the Bollywood version of Thriller has to take the cake.
