The inmates at the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center in the Philippines have another viral hit with their tribute to PSY’s “Gangnam Style.”

The video was only uploaded on Saturday and, after four days, is already up to 1.6 million views on YouTube. It is up to 15,389 likes. Of course that’s nothing compared to the original video, which is up to 334.6 million views.

In the video, the inmates are seen performing PSY’s famous dance moves, which includes riding an invisible horse in their orange jumpsuits.

According to The New York Daily News, most inmates at the prison have been convicted of drug trafficking, rape and other major crimes. It has become world renowned for using dance as a rehabilitation method.

Five years ago, CPDRC gained fame for its “Thriller” tribute, which has racked up 51 million views. They’ve also done Queen’s “Radio Gaga” and Soulja Boy’s “Crank That.”

PSY’s single is now No. 1 in the UK and still at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, although it has topped the Digital Songs chart.
