AUSTIN (KXAN) — Police dash cameras are usually the source for great video – that is, when they’re recording what the police officer sees in the outward world. This dash cam video takes an introspective look, in more ways than one – capturing what’s going on inside the patrol car. As it turns out, that seems more entertaining this time around.
Dover Police Officer Jeff Davis gets to cruising – and grooving – in his patrol cruiser to Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off.” It’s lip-syncing at its finest, and the uniform tops off the impeccable performance.
The viral video — now nearing 14.2 million as of Monday morning – starts off by saying that the department tends to see some interesting things while reviewing in-car cameras. This gem is what they found in what they’re now dubbing “Dash Cam Confessionals.”
Davis has reportedly been with the department for 19 years, which means he’s got a passion for what he does. Now we know that he’s got a passion for pairing incredible lip-syncing with moving and grooving.
As for Tay-Tay, she loved his sass.
By the way, a Dover Police Department spokesman says the video was staged, “done in fun.” Officer Davis’ 15 minutes of fame took only 15 minutes to produce, according to USA Today.
