The Orange County Sheriff Department
hopped on the bandwagon and posted a video to their Facebook page
on Friday, July 1.
"Hundreds of OSCO employees came together as a unit, group or individually to demonstrate that we stand together united with our community and as Americans. We remain Orlando United; Keep Dancing Orlando!!" the Orange County Sheriff Department
wrote on Facebook.
The three minute video starts with Sheriff Jerry Demings hosting a mock press conference where he promises an "important announcement." "I want to keep Orlando smiling," Demings said in the video as he turns on the boom box to play Whitney Houston's "Dance With Somebody."
The viral video, with 2.9 million views as of Tuesday, includes sheriff's on motorcycles, members of the K-9 unit and forensics unit and more.
The sheriff's department also challenged the Orlando Police Department
, Orange County
and City of Orlando
Since the Pulse tragedy, organizations in Orlando are breaking out their best dance moves "to keep Orlando smiling".
