I love this video!

A street performer was left shocked after he got served by a ‘police officer’ on the dance floor.

A man in an officer’s uniform surprised onlookers when he jumped into the middle of the creative clash in New York and showed he had better dance moves than most of the people there. A video of the incident showed a man in a black top dancing.

The performer was impressing the public when out of nowhere the supposed New York police department officer got involved. The man, in full uniform, proved to be a formidable opponent and clinched victory when he performed the ‘backwards worm’ dance.

Reddit user BBoyElusive has since claimed he was the ‘police officer’ in the video.

He also revealed he didn’t actually work for the NYPD and was just playing an officer in a film that day.
