It appears that the lip sync challenge between local Texas police departments has started a great idea to let go and show creativity and imagination.
The idea of the challenge started shortly before July 4 and has now become a national social media phenomena. An officer by the name of Alexander Mena, a deputy with the Bexar County, Texas Sheriff’s Office singing “Fuiste Mala” by the Kumbia Kings and challenging other officers.
It didn’t take long for Sgt. Gloria Ruiz and Officer Joe Rodriguez from the Texas State Technical College (TSTC) Police Department on the Harlingen campus to accept the challenge. Their video features “El Golpe Traidor” interpreted by Delia y Culturas, a Tejano band that saw some measure of success during the 80’s. The song was originally authored and interpreted by “Los Saylors” in 1971. Because of this effort, now departments from across the country are participating.
The TSTC police department challenge is targeting teammates at the TSTC Waco Police Department hoping that they will accept the challenge, but the idea is for all police departments to accept the lip-sync challenge. Choose your song now, and get it going.
At least for the police department, the lip-sync challenge is unprecedented. According to TSTC spokesperson, the interest has been surprising. In the first hour, they posted the video it had 60 shares and about a thousand views. Numbers are growing by the minute. Join now!
