When retiring police deputy Tony Scherb stepped into the elevator at his office, he had no idea that the security cameras were rolling. A well-respected member of the force and someone many of the officers looked up to, the stress of his job was beginning to take its toll. However, the world would soon find out how Tony let off some steam…

14. A 29-Year Career

Due to retire in 2016, Tony was one of his department’s longest-serving officers in El Paso County located in Colorado. He worked with the traffic and transport units for over 29-years, and was well-liked by his fellow colleagues. However, the time had come to pass the baton and move onto his next phase in life.

13. Unexpected Security Footage

Thanks to frequent malfunctions at the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, the department had installed a security camera in the elevator to ensure the safety of the passengers if it happened to get stuck. However, Tony’s co-workers never expected to catch him doing this one afternoon…

12. Getting in the Groove

At first, Tony walked into the elevator alone and appeared to be checking his phone while the hit song “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)” played quietly. However, after a few moments, Tony really started to feel the music, throwing in a few moves every now and then.

Despite knowing he was probably being watched, Tony really started to let loose. Strike a pose there, Mr. T! Those are some serious moves you’re beginning to pull out.

Soon Tony was joined by another officer as he began to lip sync and show off his dancing skills. As you can see, she’s not that impressed. We have to admit, we’re not really either.

9. The Power of Music

The officer tries to maintain her composure, but soon becomes a slave to the rhythm of the music. She starts to join in as Tony begins to perform the signature “stanky leg” move. These two should really go on the road, don’t you think?

8. Fun’s Over!

Unfortunately, Chief Deputy Evans arrives on the scene, immediately ending their dance party. Tony even offered the Chief a salute, despite the music still playing in the background.

7. What’s Really Going on in Here?

Evans seems suspicious of the two secretive dancers, and Tony and the officer begin to think they have stepped into some serious trouble. Could they find themselves in the line of fire soon?

6. Three’s a Crowd

Thankfully, Chief Evans gets off on the next floor and they are joined by another officer who is more into their elevator dance routine. All three begin to get down to the beat, rocking back and forth as they perform the “superman.” We have to admit, we’ve never had this much fun in an elevator before.

5. Uh-oh Here Comes the Sheriff

Unfortunately, the dance party is brought to a stop when Sheriff Bill Elder gets on the elevator. All three rogue dancers quickly stop their antics, nervous they may have taken things one step too far.

4. Sheriff Wants in on the Action

Sheriff Bill isn’t one to be left out though and starts to breakdown a few moves of his own. Breathing a collective sigh of relief, Tony and his backup dancers begin to jive with the beat again.

3. A YouTube Hit

As a tribute to his service and out of love for Tony, the police department posted the elevator footage on YouTube where it has garnered over 8 million views. That’s pretty impressive we have to say!

2. Letting Go and Having Fun

Since are living in some seriously troubling times where police officers are under more scrutiny than ever, it’s nice to see these cops joining together as friends. The world definitely needs more laughter and joy these days.

1. Celeb Status

Even though the police department usually only posts videos of recent arrests or current suspects on the run, they felt this one time they would allow for some fun. Thankfully, it’s been well-received by the public, turning Tony into an Internet sensation!
