Middletown police Chief Rodney Muterspaw says he’s “overwhelmed” by the response to a video his department created as part of a national lip sync challenge among police departments.

Lady Antebellum tweeted, “This #NeedYouNow lip sync is amazing!” They referred to an article from the Hamilton-Middletown Journal-News as part of their tweet. In addition to everyone getting a kick out of something that makes you smile, there is certainly marketing value for various recording artists in this as well.

Since its posting on Wednesday the video has been viewed more than 2 million times.

The police chief says it took about an hour to shoot the video. He says some officers were reluctant at first but everyone seemed to enjoy the experience.
