A couple of Anderson County Sheriff’s Office deputies are throwing down a lip sync challenge for other agencies around the Upstate.
Sgt. Villegas and Cpl. Wilkinson are the stars of a video shared on the department’s Facebook page. In the video, the two men in full police uniform passionately lip sync to “I Want It That Way” by the Backstreet Boys.
The deputies don’t hold back in the performance, which includes hand motions and dramatic flair.
The Facebook post said the deputies “had a little time on their hands at lunch and decided to throw down the gauntlet.”
The post challenges other shifts within the department as well as City of Anderson Police, Greenville County Sheriff’s Office, Pickens County Sheriff’s Office, Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office and Abbeville County Sheriff’s Office.
See the video for yourself on the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.
Each of the departments is tagged in the post which closes with the hashtag #LipSyncLEO.
As of 3 p.m. Tuesday, the Anderson Police Department responded with a Facebook video of its own featuring Officer Shane Bearden lip syncing to Britney Spears’ “…Baby One More Time.”
The post also challenges Williamston, IVA, Pendleton, Belton, West Pelzer, Honea Path and Tri-County Tech police departments.
