Top 15 #LipSyncChallenge videos
We've watched more lip sync videos than we can count – some amazing, some torturous – to bring you a definitive ranking of the very best clips
By PoliceOne Staff
Police departments across the nation have captured the attention of the public this summer through the viral Lip Sync Challenge videos.
For those living under a rock, the Lip Sync Challenge kicked off in mid-June when Deputy Alexander Mena of the Bexar County Sheriff's Office in Texas posted a video to Facebook of himself lip-syncing to “Fuiste Mala” by the Kumbia Kings. Since then, hundreds of agencies have answered the challenge with increasingly impressive and elaborate entries.
We've watched more of these videos than we can count – some amazing, some torturous – to bring you a definitive ranking of the very best clips. Did we miss any? Did we get it completely wrong? Spot on? Share your thoughts in the comments section.

This Marky Mark may be better than the real thing.

This excellent medley starts with a car stunt and ends with a spot-on spoof of the “Friends” intro.

The Las Cruces PD gets major points for their clever way of tying the various segments together. There’s also some local flavor here – former Las Cruces cop turned country singer Frank Ray makes an appearance. Toby Keith even gave them a shout out!

The boys of the Cleveland PD take you to Havana.
