Think about what you did on your lunch break today. Maybe went for a walk. Perused the latest ASOS offerings. Ate more food than you probably needed to and loved every second of it.

Well, that all pales in comparison to the efforts of the fine folk in uniform at Norfolk Police Department in the US, who danced their way into viral history by filming an epic lip sync battle.

After being challenged by police in Corinth Texas, three dozen police at the Norfolk Police Department in Virginia shimmied their way through the station to the beats of Bruno Mars’ Uptown Funk.

“YOUR WAIT IS OVER!!!!” the department captioned the video on Facebook.

“The Norfolk Police Department was challenged by the Corinth Police Department, Texas to a #lipsync battle and we gladly accepted. As you can see we all had a great time filming the video, which we have to point out was done in #onetake!”

Their damn fine efforts haven’t gone unrewarded, with the internet completely losing it over the clip.

At last count, the video had been watched 25 million views and shared over 700 times. Not only that, but the lead lip sync policeman has won quite the legion of fans.

“I just need the front guy’s badge number and I’m committing all types of crimes and personally requesting that he cuffs me lol,” joked one.
