Those wacky Filipino prison dancers (The Solid Gold Axe Murderers, or whatever they call themselves) described their interpretation of Laura Brannigan's 1982 hit "Gloria" as a protest, meant to show their displeasure with some snarky comments made about Cardinal Ricardo Vidal.
Why do these guys give a fig about a cardinal? I mean if they're devout Catholics, how did they end up in prison, anyway? Or do they really not care about Vidal at all, but there's some scary dude off-camera bellowing "You vill dance! You vill dance and you vill LIKE IT!!"?
Why "Gloria"? Why does the announcer say it's "aptly titled"? I thought it was about Gloria Swanson's character in Sunset Boulevard.
Does this make the figure skating scene in Flashdance a protest, too? If so, against what, exactly?
Please help me out, here. I am so confused.
