Is this guy a police officer? A security guard? All we know is that he’s been seen at a Los Angeles Clippers games busting quite some moves.
It all happened in January 2020 – you know, before the world fell apart. In fact, people were positively bored during regular-season games while they waited for the playoffs.
We didn’t know how good we had it.
Showing some magic
The Clippers were playing the Orlando Magic that day at the Staples Center when there was a timeout.
And because all arenas seem to have a jumbotron designed to get people to act their very oddest, the “Baby Shark Cam” came on and tried to get people to dance to a children’s song for the crowd’s amusement.
That’s when Clippers mascot Chuck the Condor joined in the fun and approached a man who appeared to be a cop working security at the game.
The man ignored him for a hot second before deciding better of it. When else can you expect your 15 minutes of fame after all?
Frankly, it didn’t take much convincing to make this man shake his groove thang.
Saweetie’s “My Type” came on and…
Well, that’s apparently his jam.
The website FanBuzz seems to think he’s legit, even if the performance itself was clearly staged.
“Hitting ‘The Woah’ and dropping an absolutely flawless Michael Jackson-style split drew raucous applause before the Los Angeles Police Department veteran returns to watching the crowd,” they wrote of the viral video.
Frankly, we couldn’t’ tell you what part of this dance is “The Whoa,” but we said “whoa” over and over again – especially when he did a split and a cartwheel!
Since January, the video has been viewed on Bleacher Report’s YouTube account over 2.3 million times – and that’s just one of the many, many places it was posted.
Some people really want to believe he’s a veteran LAPD officer who waited his whole life for this one moment and finally just let it all loose.
And yet because so many people saw the video, some felt like they recognized him from similar “impromptu” dances at other sports venues. Fans insisted that he was a security guard in Houston and Florida when the same thing happened.
It doesn’t appear to be the same person to us in all three of those cases, but it’s not exactly a mystery worth solving since it kind of takes the fun out of the whole effort.
And it was a great effort! (Made better by the demented pink condor in the background and the “officer’s” “return to duty” as if nothing happened right after his dance was done.)
It’s not the first time
He’s not the first “officer” to get caught up in the music thanks to a team mascot. Back in 2015, the Houston Astros mascot, Orbit, began dancing on the field and taunted a guard.
Then he got absolutely PWN’d by the man’s breakdancing skills.
The real winner
The LA Clippers won their game against the Magic on the night of the dancing cop, and JaMychal Green got a double-double with 11 points and 13 rebounds in 23 minutes.
But we can probably all agree that the real winner here is whoever the man in uniform really is.
