DOVER, Del. - A video of a bald and burly Delaware police officer enthusiastically lip-syncing to Taylor Swift's "Shake it Off" is getting global attention.
The video, posted to the Dover Police Department's Facebook page Friday, shows Master Cpl. Jeff Davis in uniform and driving a patrol car while lip-syncing to the hit pop song — sassy head rolls and finger-pointing included.
Department spokesman Cpt. Mark Hoffman said Saturday that he's gotten calls about the video from media outlets in Australia, Britain, Germany, and throughout the U.S. It had 845,000 YouTube views and counting by Saturday afternoon.
Hoffman says Davis, a 19-year veteran of the department, is "the class clown" and loved making the video.
He says the 48-year-old father of four knows "Shake it Off" so well because of his 10-year-old daughter.
