A group of cops from the Los Angeles Police Department has become the latest to accept and perform the international "Running Man" challenge.
The LAPD cops' video posted on YouTube on May 13 shows the police department strutting their best '90s dance moves in various spots in Los Angeles. These include the Dodger Stadium, the top of a skyscraper in downtown LA and Griffith Park near the famous Hollywood sign.

Since the highschoolers behind the "Running Man" challenge gained popularity, various performers such as Chris Brown and professional athletes such as the L.A. Dodgers and the Miami Heat have given their own spin on the new viral video. more >>
