Anthony Heard is a deputy with the Elbert County Sheriff's Office. He posted a video on his Facebook page of himself dancing and singing (well, lip syncing) to Luke Bryan's "Shake It" -- and he did just that.
"In continuation with tradition surrounding public safety interactive video challenges across the nation, the City of Monroe Police Department has returned from the 2016 Running Man Challenge to battle with other law enforcement departments across the country with the current Lip Sync Battle Challenge of 2018," the challenge read.
The gauntlet has been thrown, Georgia EMS departments! It remains to be seen if any other departments will respond to the challenge.
A friendly lip-sync competition is heating up on social media among law enforcement agencies across the country.
Police officers are showing off their lip-syncing abilities and posting their videos to Twitter, Facebook and the like.
It appears the latest viral performances started in Texas about two weeks ago as a mic drop between the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office and the San Antonio Police Department, The Dallas Morning News reported.
Alexander Mena of the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office lip-synced “Fuiste Mala.” His video has more than 1.4 million views.
Then the Fort Worth Police Department answered the challenge with Alanis Morissette’s hit “Ironic.” And despite it being summer, the officer sported the winter gear similar to Morrissette’s in the video,
Dallas officers went with what they called old school with “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.”
First it was Boston’s police department and two officers’ rendition of “God Bless America.” Now two police officers with the New York Police Department are throwing down the mic with their version of “cop-pool karaoke” as they hit the beat for Fourth of July.
But instead of a patriotic standard, the officers went with a more contemporary song, Katy Perry’s “Firework.”
