The video of police officers in Switzerland dancing to a popular song Jerusalema went viral created a huge buzz online. Frankie Beats, an Irish radio DJ based in Portugal, shared their video and asked the Gardaí, the national police of Ireland, if they were up for the Jerusalema dance challenge which was one of the biggest social media trends of 2020.
The Irish cops ended up accepting the dance challenge, but have not released the video of their dance challenge yet.
Frankie Beats tweeted, “Police officers in Switzerland @fedpolCH decided to do something special for its people in these dark times. Just amazing!” he wrote online praising the Swizz police teams. Tagging the Irish Police’s official handle he added: “@gardainfo? Will you accept the challenge if enough people retweet this?”
Things got more interesting when Swiss Federal Police’s official Twitter account replied to the tweet saying that they are looking forward to the performance of the Irish cops.
Swiss Federal Police’s official Twitter account tweeted, “looking forward to the performance of the @gardainfo!” But they upped the ante, adding: “Even though the Flag of Switzerland product of the @ZugerPolizei can hardly be topped in terms of #precision, #discipline an #perfectionism”, with an wink emoji.
Even the Department of Justice too got involved, tagging the Gardaí to accept the challenge and make Ireland proud.
Law enforcement officers attached with Zugar Polizei had recently released the video of them enjoying themselves in the snow, dancing their hearts out. The over four-minute video shared on their official handle gained nearly 8 million views on Facebook alone, not just winning hearts in Switzerland but around the world.
From police in riot gears to staff at control rooms, all were seen dancing to viral African hit Jerusalema, composed by musician Master KG and sung by African gospel vocalist Nomcebo Zikode.
