Deputy Tony Scherb of the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office in central Colorado recently retired after a 29-year career on the force. He earned a reputation for being “highly professional,” but now that he was retiring, Scherb decided to loosen up and go out in a blaze of glory, at least in the office’s elevator. What he didn’t know was the real story behind the new surveillance camera they installed in the elevator after the previous one experienced constant “malfunctions.”
Yes, Deputy Scherb wasn’t going to be allowed to retire without falling victim to one final prank. Fellow officers installed the new camera so they could see what he’d do when he heard Silento’s pop/hip-hop song “Watch me (Whip/Nae Nae)” playing over the elevator’s speakers. It’s no wonder the resulting footage has gone viral on the internet, attracting millions of views. Deputy Scherb may be an older man and look a little square, but we have to hand it to him: once the music starts, he busts out some really great dance moves. The guy’s good!
The elevator stops and Deputy Reed from Rural Enforcement Outreach walks in on the one-man dance party. She’s a little taken aback at first, but after a few seconds, she’s dancing, too! Her moves aren’t bad, either — a few more years at the Sheriff’s Office and she might become a Tony Scherb caliber dancer. The elevator stops again and their boss Chief Deputy Evans gets on. The dancing deputies stop and act like nothing unusual was going on, although Reed can’t quite keep a smirk off her face. Scherb, a seasoned professional, manages to salute smartly. The boss is soon off the elevator, replaced by Deputy Murphy the School Resource Officer. Moments later, all three of them are dancing. Finally, Sheriff Evans himself gets on the elevator. At first, the sheriff stands there looking serious but then he, too, is busting out the moves!
