“Shake it Off” Cop Video Staged, Still Awesome

thumb 560x232

The viral video of the Dover Police Officer lip-synching to Taylor Swift’s Shake it Off was apparently staged by the department to promote its social media channels. The video went absolutely nuts on the internet over the past 2 days, and has already received over 10.5 million views. We suspected the video was likely staged when we first saw it, and that suspicion has now been confirmed. Honestly that doesn’t take away from the awesomeness of this sassy cop who apparently knows all of the words :

The video is bringing much needed positive attention the Police, and will likely result in Master. Cpl. Jeff Davis getting to do a series of fun interviews this week. Somehow we think the haters are still gonna hate, hate, hate.
