The New York Police Department has taken up the gauntlet in the New Zealand police's running man challenge.
NZ police uploaded a video of several officers dancing to the NZ Police Recruitment page yesterday, and challenged other police stations around the world to join in.
In response, members of the NYPD filmed themselves dancing with some local teens and uploaded the video on their Facebook page this morning (NZ time).
NZ police tweeted "Kapai to @NYPDnews for accepting the #RunningManChallenge. Love your work!"
To date, the NZ video has had nearly 120,000 likes and over 50,000 shares on Facebook.
