A talented police officer has been dubbed the “world’s best dancing copy” after posting a hilarious clip of him doing the running-man challenge – by body-popping.
Pc Dan Graham’s incredible dance moves racked-up an astonishing half-a-million views in just 12 hours after the clip was posted online – after accepting the challenge from a convict.
Posted at around 6pm on Monday evening, the video has since been viewed more than half-a-million times and shared by 7,000 people.
The Metropolitan Police officer, from Kingston-upon-Thames, Surrey, quickly received praise from people on social media for his incredible, robot-like 80s dance moves.
Roxy Connor wrote: “Omg! Kingston police just smashed it out the ball park!! Is he a real police officer? He has moves!”
Angelia Foster added: “Now that is how the Running Man is done. Good Show Chap.”
But not everyone was so positive, with many asking why they were wasting time and tax-payers’ money.
Ray Hon said: “There’s rapists loose yet there doing some stupid video.
“I would get sacked for doing this at work, also you forgot to beat the living daylight out of the person before you threw them in the cell.”
Jason Nwansi wrote: “I counted approximately ten police officers who should have been out arresting criminals instead of faffing around in a video – please stop this.”
But others quickly waded in to defending the beat-loving cops.
Tom Grant said: “To all of those making comments about wasting taxpayers money and catching real criminals, direct your enquiries to the Palace of Westminster as you will find many more wasters and criminals there.”
The so-called Running Man Challenge has gone viral and taken police forces around the world by storm.
To the sound of Ghost Town DJ’s 1996 hit ‘My Boo’, officers attempt to pull off the ‘running man’ dance move.
Kingston’s two-minute video features a hoodie-clad, handcuffed suspect challenging PC Graham to the challenge, before she bounds around in attempt to re-create the dance move.
But PC Graham quickly shows her how it’s done, body-popping and recreating the move to perfections, before being joined by a handful of other officer from Kingston’s force.
