Police offers are sworn to protect and serve their local communities—we all know that. What we didn't know until earlier this week, when a very particular kind of #LipSyncChallenge video started to crowd our newsfeeds, was that a few of these hardworking law-enforcement officials have some serious moves!
The trend started at the end of June with police departments in central Texas challenging each other to post their most creative lip-syncs to danceable hits. (So far, Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk" seems to be the most popular song choice.) In the past few days, police and fire departments as far-flung as Seattle, WA, and Norfolk, VA, have started to take on this most daunting of challenges.
But here's the thing: Not all lip-syncs are created equal, nor are all police officers equally skilled in the fine art of dad-dancing while mouthing all the words to Top 40 hits. So in honor of the Police Lip-Sync Battle achieving viral-video craze status, we here at Dance Spirit are proud to bring you our picks for the three danciest entries thus far. You're now under arrest (for the 10-ish minutes it'll take to giggle along to these clips)!
Flower Mound, TX
The PD of Flower Mound, TX, kicks things off with their sass-tastic rendition of Meghan Trainor's "Me Too." Look out for a movie montage-worthy gym sequence, goofy dance bloopers galore (watch 'til the very end!), and the most, well, #inspired version of washing a fire engine we have yet to see in this life. Yeah, we wanna be y'all too, Flower Mound.
