Anyone who's been on Twitter and Facebook lately has probably seen videos inspired by Drake’s #InMyFeelingsChallenge and #LipSyncChallenge.
Well, Bay Area law enforcement agencies have once again shown us, cops — they are just like us.
A challenge that’s believed to have started in Texas has spread all over America. Law enforcement officers in their uniforms lip-syncing to their favorite tracks and racking up hundreds of thousands of video views.
In the Bay, the Solano County Sheriff’s Office posted a video of Deputy Cherry lip syncing to The Little Mermaid’s Part of Your World, showing viewers she too has "gadgets and gizmos aplenty," before challenging to Vacaville Police Department.
Deputy Cherry’s video was posted on July 7 and it has since gained close to one million views.
California Highway Patrol San Francisco also joined in the fun, posting a video of four of their officers and the agency's mascot Chipper the Chipmunk lip-syncing to Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody with the tweet, "Alright, here’s our shot at the law enforcement #lipsync challenge. @sfpd you guys next?? Have a safe summer everyone."
The San Francisco Police Department responded by posting their very own #InMyFeelingsChallenge, showing three of their officers showing their best moves to Drake’s new popular song before throwing a playful jab at CHP and challenging them back.
"Okay! Okay! Well done...nice video..cool throwback!. We'll work on that #lipsync challenge. In the meantime can you compete in the #InMyFeelingsChallenge," they tweeted.
They later posted a video accepting the #LipSyncChallenge writing, "Here it is... the moment you've all been waiting for! We give you The San Francisco Police Department's #LipSynchChallenge video! Keep an eye out for a special guest appearance by a local notable!"
SFPD showed everyone that it was worth the wait, singing along to several popular songs like Lights by Journey and Happy by Pharrell before cutting into an original Bay Area hit.
"Hold up, wait a minute, this is how the popo really does it by the Bay," said an officer before they blasted Blow the Whistle by Too $Hort.
That wasn't the only surprise, they even had former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown do a cameo, which may arguably be the best guest star so far.
SFPD ended their three and a half video with Justin Timberlake's Can't Stop the Feeling!
The San Mateo County Sheriff's Office went all out, posting on their facebook page, "So you say you want to battle?! San Mateo County is about to do a mic drop with a classic lip sync battle you won't see coming."
They chose Boyz II Men's End of The Road, challenging many other agencies like Alameda County, Monterey County and Redwood City.
The Pittsburg Police Department didn't hold back, bringing in kids from the Pittsburg Unified School District to jam out to them lip syncing to Anna Kendrick's Move Your Feet.
"We took up the Police #LipSyncChallenge and we brought in some reinforcements! The kids from the @PittsburgUSD Summer School brought some serious moves to our tunes!" they tweeted.
The Contra Costa CHP joined in on the fun with their own rendition of Can't Stop the Feeling by Justin Timberlake, a popular jam among challengers.
"BOOYAH! You've asked and we've delivered because we just 'CAN'T STOP THE FEELING!' We had a fantastic time in our communities making this video. Thank you to all the great people that helped us out and participated," they wrote on their Facebook page. "Start having fun RIGHT NOW and just jump outta your seat and start dancing while watching this video because you 'CAN'T STOP THE FEELING!'"
