The one-take lip sync videos are back, thanks to a group of police officers from Norfolk, Virginia. The officers gleefully danced through their headquarters to Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk" and the video is truly delightful. A whole lot of other people thought so, too, with the video racking up almost 30 million views in just two days. That's what you call viral.
According to Mashable, the officers were challenged by Texas’ Corinth Police Department to create the lip sync video. Corinth PD tried their hand at Miley Cyrus' "Party in the USA." Norfolk stepped up to the plate and created their music video during their lunch break. TBH their lunch break seems a lot more fun than mine.
It wasn't just the police officers who participated in Norfolk's video. They recruited bomb squad members, firemen, and even a newborn baby to be a part of the fun.
Norfolk has now challenged Seattle Police Department, Norfolk Constabulary, Virginia Beach Police Department, and St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department to join the party.
