‘Under pressure’: VBPD teases its lip sync challenge video


VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — This is Virginia Beach police, under pressure.

The department teased its yet-to-be-released entry in the Lip Sync Challenge to the tune of Queen’s “Under Pressure.” 

The video shows shows an officer sweating behind a computer monitor while watching Norfolk police’s video. And why shouldn’t he be feeling the pressure?

Norfolk’s Lip Sync Challenge video has been viewed on Facebook more than 63 million times, shared over 1.4 million times and was was recently featured on NBC Nightly News.

And if that wasn’t enough, Norfolk challenged Virginia Beach in its July 9 video. Virginia Beach accepted the challenge four days later.

Police departments across the country have gone viral over the past few weeks — challenging and one-upping each other in lip sync battles.

Norfolk’s hit video was a response to a challenge from the Corinth Police Department in Texas.

Now, the public awaits Virginia Beach’s response. Stay tuned.
