If you’re looking for the toughest competitions known to man, look no further than the dance off. Two individuals face each other to determine who’s the baddest on the block for moving their feet. Group battles are even more chaotic with multiple individuals looking to represent their area.
Jarrod Singh from the Durham Regional Police Service in Ontario, Canada was called by a random person to break up a big fight down the street. Fortunately, no fight took place.
Instead, it was the dance troupe from the University of Ontario Institute of Technology filming themselves dancing during a music video shoot set up by Vivid Media.
In a statement about the situation, Singh said:
I saw eight people gathered around one person, so I can see how a member of the public thought it was a fight. But when I got closer, I could see he was break dancing in the middle, and there was someone filming it.
The officer decided to have a small chat with the students before busting some moves in front of the camera. Singh isn’t a slouch when it comes to the dance floor, either; the officer, who has been with his department for a year, was part of a dance troupe in Durham College of Applied Arts and Technology in the same town.
This specific troupe were the opening act for platinum selling rappers Rick Ross, Drake, and Busta Rhymes.
The video quickly went viral with over 100,000 views and nearly 20,000 shares over on Facebook.
Last year, police departments around the world took part in the Running Man challenge, and everyone from the Western Australia Police to the New York Police Department got involved. Back in October, Lieutenant Deuntay Diggs from the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office in Richmond, Virginia wowed crowds with his rendition of Beyonce’s “Formation” for a pep rally.
