Some of us may even remember when social media blew up with a “running man challenge” that had people all over the world doing the quirky dance. To participate in the challenge, these police officers in New Zealand do a hilarious running man challenge that went massively viral for its pure comedy.

Even so, they’re actually really good dancers!

These New Zealand police officers get in on the “running man challenge” and the results are so awesome.

Back in 2016, the internet was lit on fire by the “running man challenge,” and police departments everywhere joined in on the fun. Some of the cops from New Zealand made one too, and it’s too funny to miss.

At the beginning of this video, you can see a police car pull up quickly and hit the breaks before two officers get out of the car and pretend to go investigate a wallet on the ground.

That’s when “My Boo” by the Ghost Town DJs comes on and they start breaking it down.

One of the officers flips his hat under his arm and they both start doing the running man.

After that, more cops come out of nowhere to join them. Just when you think it’s only two police officers doing the challenge, more of them step into the frame, all doing a hysterical version of the running man dance. The looks on their faces are too funny, and you can tell they’re having a lot of fun.

They all bust out their awesome dance moves, shuffling their feet and pumping their arms.

After dancing for a little bit, their superior comes over and steals the show.

You can see a superior officer come into the middle of the dancing cops, pushing them out of the way and going solo.

When the top cop comes into the frame, he clears them out so he can have some room to dance. After that, he starts doing some outstanding moves that make you think he may have been a dancer before he became a police officer…

He simultaneously slides his feet and snaps his arms, spinning around in a circle while dancing.

This guy is a really good dancer—and if policing doesn’t work out, he might have a career in cutting rugs!

After he dances for a bit, he switches back into cop-mode and calmly takes his ticket book out of his front pocket while walking away.

It’s so funny how he changes his energy on a dime, walking off like he’s going to go write someone a ticket. The whole time he’s dancing, he has a big cheesy smile on his face that literally made us laugh out loud.
