The Wichita Police Department’s bomb squad looked like it had a blast shooting its entry in the local Running Man Challenge, capping the dance with a controlled explosion.

Voters appeared to enjoy it as well, making it the clear winner over four other entries in a friendly competition designed to build camaraderie and show a lighter side to law enforcement.

The bomb squad video earned more than 800 likes on the police department’s Facebook page, easily outpacing the Patrol West video.

The challenge is a video dance craze that has spread across the globe, featuring people doing the “Running Man” hip-hop dance to the 1990s song “My Boo” by the Ghost Town DJs.
