ROBSTOWN, Texas — Police officers like to have fun, too.
Videos of law enforcement officials dancing and lip syncing to songs have been circulating on social media recently.
A pair of Robstown police officers took to Facebook to show their lip syncing skills in a video.
In the short video, officers Jimmy Zamora and Jordan Armstrong are seen sitting in their vehicle when they discover a lip syncing video from Bexar County Sherrif’s Department.
“So our brothers up in San Antonio have been making some great videos,” a Facebook post by Zamora reads. “We just had to come out of retirement real quick and remind everyone who the originals were.”
The officers start lip syncing to “Back Street’s Back” by the Back Street Boys, but cut it short to switch to another song.
“We gotta show them how it’s really done in South Texas,” Zamora says in the video.
They both starting moving to the beat of Selena Quintanilla’s “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” while mouthing the lyrics.
The video is a response to a Bexar County sheriff’s deputy’s lip syncing video to “Fuiste mala” by Intocable and Kumbia Kings. It’s been viewed 1 million times and gotten more than 16,000 shares.
San Antonio Police Department also posted a video, creating the lip sync battle. Bexar County Sheriff’s Department posted another lip syncing video shortly after.
The department posted a video of an officer lip syncing in a vehicle to *NSYNC’s “Bye Bye.” He even has the same moves as the group does in their music video.
That video has been shared more than 6,000 times.
“I think they were great and they sure brought the heat,” Zamora said. “But we went viral three years ago with ours so we had to come out and make another video when friends and family started tagging us in the other officers’ videos.”
“We knew Selena, the queen, would hands down shut it down,” he said.
Lip syncing is nothing new for Zamora and Armstrong. The duo has made lip syncing videos in the past, including songs from Taylor Swift, Adele and Cyndi Lauper.
“We make these to help show that we’re humans too. We laugh and smile just like everyone. I feel like when people see this, that they can see that we’re humans just like they are,” Zamora said.
A video from 2015 showed the two officers in separate vehicles lip syncing to “Hello” by Adele. It’s been viewed more than 1 million times and shared more than 11,000 times.
