Are Philadelphia Police ready to dance?

The Detroit Police Department called out Philly and some other major city police departments in a Facebook video of the #RunningManChallenge. [[380767681, C]]

"I’m calling out Cincinnati, New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, we out of here, join the DPD," says Detroit Chief James Craig toward the end of the video.

The video is the latest in a series of viral videos where officers in uniform -- in Detroit's case dozens of the city's police -- let loose and dance to Ghost Town DJ’s "My Boo." The challenge seems rooted with the University of Maryland’s Men’s Basketball Team, reported USA Today Sports.

And Detroit’s, which also promotes getting a job with the Michigan department has been one of the most successful with nearly 5 million views in less than 48 hours.

And, Detroit Police aren’t the only ones calling out Philly PD as Abington Township Police in Montgomery County also laid down the #RunningManChallenge gauntlet.

Philly PD have yet to reveal if the challenge will be accepted as Sgt. Eric Gripp, Philly Police social and digital media manager simply said, "Disco Stu doesn't advertise."
