Officials said that the purpose of the show was meant to relieve inmates from stress and to help them keep in shape. The video was recorded during a “Gangnam Style” dance contest last week, but not all inmates were permitted to do the Gangnam Style dance.

“Some suffer from stress and some need time adjusting to prison life, so we arrange many activities for prisoners to feel relaxed. Dancing is one of them, and they can have time to exercise, play together and stay together,” Suchart Wongananchai, Director General of Department of Corrections was quoted saying in a report.

According to reports, the Thai inmates have been competing in the Gangnam dance showdown since October for a chance to win food, clothing and a trophy.

The Thai inmates go Gangnam Style presentation coincides with the Korean rapper Psy‘s concert in Thailand this Wednesday, November 28, 2012.

Below is the YouTube video of the inmates that do the Gangnam Style dance.
