Who knew that these cops could also bust a move?
There is hardly anyone who is able to resist a good Lip Sync Challenge. However, the latest of these challenges to go viral has got cops in on the play, and some of them are turning out to be exceptionally amazing videos. The advent of the challenge was explained by 7 News Miami, noting, “The whole thing started in Texas on the 19th of June, when the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office shared a video of their deputy, Alexander Mena, singing ‘Fuiste Mala’ by Kumbia Kings.
From there, it just kind of took off.
Officers who are in charge of social media for the department decided to post the video on social media platforms, saying that he had a ‘mean lip sync that nobody can beat’. The action prompted other law enforcement agencies to take the challenge up, and it has continued to rise in popularity ever since”
Law enforcement officers are supposed to serve and protect, but it turns out that they can also do a mean lip sync dance routine when someone puts the call out there.
The Nixa Police Department in Missouri decided to throw their hat into the ring, and they definitely didn’t do badly for themselves. They had a fun take of the song ‘Footloose’ by Kenny Loggins. Of course, the lip sync song needs to include some dancing, and the cops were joined by a couple of community members. Together, they all had an all-out dance party, and it was just so beautiful to see.
The video started with a shot of the police chief’s door as it was opened, and he came out, saying the classic Kevin Bacon Footloose line, “I thought that this was a party”. From there, the chief instructed them all to dance. There are also a few shots of peoples’ feet getting into the groove and cops putting some of their moves on display before they start the real dancing and dip syncing.
The police department took to Facebook to note, “No budget, no production (the video was shot and edited by our Public Information Officer, who actually studied film production), and all our officers out some time into participating. We believe in being responsible with the money paid by tax payers, and we made sure to do so, even while we had a lot of fun”
They also thanked some other parties, saying, “Thanks to everyone in the Nixa community who came out to party with us. Y’all are much fun!”
Among the many comments that their video got on Facebook were people who were absolutely in love with the video.
Someone said, “This was really awesome”
“It’s still the best one I’ve seen,” wrote another
Others were also impressed by the fact that it was more than just police officers who were involved in the video. Comments included “I love how you guys included members of the community and other organizations” and “You did an awesome job by inviting a lot of people from the community, and it looks like you all had a lot of fun”
Another commenter said, “This was an awesome video. It is truly beautiful to see people come together in a community and have a lovely time together. I really love this stuff. It’s always good to see something competitive and still positive”
