It's become sort of a thing in Texas and now across the U.S.: Police officers in cars, lip-syncing to pop songs, posting the videos to social media and issuing a challenge to the next officer.
"What you got?"
And, it all started with Alexander Mena, a deputy in the Bexar County, Texas, Sheriff's Office. His department posted a video of Mena singing "Fuiste Mala" by the Kumbia Kings on June 19. As of today, the video has 1.4 million views. Mena is a recruiting-team deputy with Bexar County for three years, said he'd been doing lip-sync videos since he'd gotten on SnapChat. One day, he sent one of the videos to his sergeant who then passed it along to the officers who handle social media for the sheriff's office. It took off from there…
Trophy Club was challenged by the Southlake Police Department to participate in the #LipSyncChallenge. Town staff coordinated efforts, researched songs, brainstormed ideas and thanks to our Police Department personnel came up with a brilliant concept. It was decided that Trophy Club would put a spin on the challenge by incorporating a public service announcement (PSA) into it about drinking and driving. What you will see is both our Police and Fire teams approaching a scene, treating a victim and processing a drunk driver. All while having some fun and lip singing!
We hope you enjoy it! Special thanks to Chief Arata and Cheif Carroll for letting Sgt Mitchell, Sgt Glueck, Sara Stockstrom and all the other staff on our team run with this! "Whatever it takes"!
