The New York Police Department provided more than just security for the city’s annual pride parade.
One cop is becoming a viral sensation thanks to his stellar dance skills. You might even call his moves “New York’s finest.”
A YouTube video shared after Sunday’s parade shows a parade marcher getting his groove on with what appears to be a member of the New York Police Department. We’ve reached out to the NYPD for comment but haven’t heard back yet.
The 12-second clip stars the unlikely duo dancing to along to Michael Jackson’s “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough.”
Gothamist spotted the video on a New York-centric Reddit board.
The cop’s dance partner was a man named Aaron, who was marching with the Big Apple Softball League during the parade, explains the user who posted the video, Paige Ponzeka.
“The officer in the video was standing stoic, watching the parade, and Aaron tried to dance with him,” Ponzeka told Business Insider. “And at first he wasn’t very responsive. But then he got really into it, and the crowd loved it.”
Here’s a look at the pair dancing in the street. Clutching his hat and moving to the music, the cop is all smiles.
