DURHAM, N.C. — This may be one of the best Running Man Challenge videos yet.

WTVD reports that the Durham Police Department and the Durham County Sheriff’s Office answered the Atlanta Police Department’s challenge to make the video – and they did not hold back.

The challenge was made popular by two Maryland Basketball players earlier this year and has taken the internet by storm, with thousands of videos being put on Facebook Live, Twitter, Vine and Youtube.

The video was created to show unity between law enforcement and the community.

“In response to the Running Man challenges issued to the Durham Police Department, and to promote a spirit of unity in the Bull City, we dedicate Durham’s Running Man Challenge video to law enforcement and the communities they serve,” the video’s introduction screen reads.
