The male officer decides to engage the kids in a dance-off and he fails. Miserably. But, that doesn't make it any less awesome to watch and since our dance moves aren't exactly anything to write home about, we give him tons of credit for trying.
The video, which was posted on YouTube by the Kansas City Police Department, already has over 500,000 views. "One of our residents sent this video to us on Facebook. He captured a KCPD officer displaying his 'best' moves in a dance-off with neighborhood children in the East Patrol Division on Aug. 10, 2014," they wrote.
We love how they put best in quotation marks. Hey, they were HIS best and that's all that matters!
So, what promoted the dance-off in the first place? "When I went to the academy and when I first got hired on, I told them how I wanted to interact with the community and build some rapport with the citizens," he told KSHB. "I feel like if we build a rapport with them then they are more likely to call us when they need us."
Well, we doubt he'll be getting any calls for dancing gigs, but we do like his approach and the fact that he's making an active effort to connect with the kids.
