(Port Hueneme, Ca) After just two weeks since Santa Paula PD posed the lip sync challenge to Ventura County Deputy Sheriff’s Office, Ventura PD, Oxnard PD, and Port Hueneme PD, Port Hueneme has accepted the challenge… the wind up, the pitch, and yes… they hit that ball!
In a city most often associated with its Navy Base, Port Hueneme is getting views, likes, and comments for something unexpected: its police offers lipsyncing popular songs.
In a showcase of their city, their peace officers, various genres of music, kids, adults, and many talented lip-sync’ers, the video put together by the Port Hueneme Police Department has garnered over 45,000 views after just 1 week since being posted on YouTube.
The light-hearted, national movement that allows police officers to select one or many songs and lip sync them with entertaining backdrops, props, and energizing scenes has become a movement around the country. Some videos have received more views than professional TV shows such as The View and 60 Minutes.
Santa Paula Police Department released their video on July 20, 2018 which has now reached over 140,000 views. Officers and members of the community danced and performed to the song “KeKe, Do you Love” by Drake while dancing “The KeKe” in the background. Their finale and video caption included a challenge to fellow police departments and the Ventura County Deputy Sheriff’s office. Only Port Hueneme Police Department has posted a response video to date.
The Port Hueneme Police Department video was a series of different songs representing the diversity of the city and the residents and community members. The creative piece offered viewers a humanizing perspective of the police officers while highlighting the many attractions in the City of Port Hueneme.
Will Ventura County Deputy Sheriff’s office share their talents with the wide community of viewers watching these videos in the 1,000’s each hour? Also not seen are the Oxnard Police Department and Ventura Police Department.
Inquiring minds want to know…. Can our officers and Sheriff dance?
