One user commented, "Love it! Thanks for [your] service! [It's] awesome to see the people behind the badge, [a lot] have forgotten that officers are people too!"

"This is great! Can you imagine what people on the road were [thinking?] [They're] probably like "[OMG] a car chase" only to find out it was a production for a music video," added another user.


Meanwhile, the Nixa Police Department in Missouri also decided to join the Internet lip synching challenge, and their remarkable performance quickly went viral.

The YouTube video posted recently shows the policemen dancing to the rhythm of Kenny Loggins’s iconic song, “Footloose.”

The lawmen showcased their dance steps to the popular song in different settings such as the streets, the police department, and restaurants. They also invited the residents of the community to join them.

The Nixa Police Department wrote on Facebook, “No budget, no production company (shot and edited by our Public Information Officer who studied film production), and all officers donated their time to participate."

"We believe in being responsible with taxpayer dollars, and we made an extra effort to do so while having fun,” they added.

The video of their performance has been viewed more than 96,000 times since it was uploaded to the popular video sharing site.
