The Flower Mound Police Department’s lip sync video has advanced to the round of eight in the USA TODAY bracket.
The USA TODAY newspaper created a bracket of 16 of the best law enforcement agencies’ lip sync challenge videos around the country.
The lip sync challenge was the social media trend of the summer that had “police officers and firefighters showing their silly side in sometimes highly-produced, often hilarious and always-entertaining lip sync challenge videos,” according to the nationwide newspaper.
Flower Mound Police Department’s lip sync of Meghan Trainor’s pop song “Me Too” got more than 7.6 million views on its Facebook video alone, plus more than 550,000 on Youtube.
FMPD got more votes than its opponent in the first round of the USA TODAY bracket, which ended on Friday. Now, it advances to the round of eight and is up against the Savannah, Georgia Police Department. Voting in the round of eight lasts until 11 a.m. CT on Tuesday.
