Hampton and Virginia Beach police departments have both released lip-syncing videos in response to Norfolk's viral performance.
The moment we've all been waiting for is finally here: Local police departments have responded to Norfolk's lip-sync challenge. It all started a couple weeks ago when Norfolk's force uploaded a video to Facebook of them lip-syncing to Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk."
The video soon went viral and has been viewed more than 69 million times on Facebook. The department followed up their performance with challenges to other units, including Hampton and Virginia Beach police.
Needless to say, the forces upped the ante.
First to respond was Hampton police when they uploaded their own lip-sync video, below. The crew performed Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch's "Good Vibrations."
The video has over 5.4 million Facebook views, and it even got a response from the man himself: Mark Wahlberg.
Great job, Hampton PD! 👊 https://t.co/TRgD7Qp1N7— Mark Wahlberg (@markwahlberg) July 14, 2018
And as shown in the video below, Virginia Beach took things a step further — literally — when they sang their way through the city, including the Boardwalk, Mount Trashmore, and Town Center. They also didn't stick to one song, but three, when the force conquered Drake's "Hotline Bling," Pharrell Williams' "Happy," and Bonnie Tyler's "Holding Out for a Hero."
Within seven hours of posting, Virginia Beach's video had been viewed on Facebook nearly 430,000 times. The department is challenging Suffolk police, among others.
So, Suffolk, we'll be waiting.
