Despite Lt. W. Foster’s protests, the Springville Police Department joined in the lip sync challenge on Monday.

The local police department created its own story for its music video and chose a song with limited lyrics, making it easier to sing along. “Mah Nà Mah Nà” is a song by Italian composer Piero Umiliani that is best known in the United States from its use on “The Muppets.”

The video follows the staff taunting Lt. Foster with lip syncing until Lt. Foster seeks help from Chief J. Scott Finlayson, which doesn’t work out.

The current wave of lip sync battles began between different police departments in Texas. Police departments across the county are recording lip sync videos and then challenging other police departments to do the same.

Last week, a Lehi police officer also joined the lip sync challenge with a 10-song mashup. Watch the Lehi police’s video here, and watch the Springville Police Department’s submission below.
