B.C. RCMP detachment wins the internet with Grinch parody

Insp. Aaron Paradis of the Ridge Meadows RCMP stars as the Grinch in this parody video.

This just might be your new perennial Christmas movie. 

The Ridge Meadows RCMP put together their own version of the Grinch, including an original(ish) song and lyrics and impressive production values to produce a holiday message and show off their fun side. 

Supt. Jennifer Hyland, who appears in the video, said in a release: "At Ridge Meadows RCMP we wanted to share with our communities a very special Holiday Christmas message wrapped up with some good old crime prevention messaging. We probably won’t be nominated for any film awards but we had a lot of fun putting this eight and a half minute short-film together." 

"We hope it puts a smile on your face."
