Freeze! Phoenix police releases mannequin challenge video to attract new recruits
PHOENIX — Are you looking for a change of career? The Phoenix Police Department will have to ask you to stay right there and don’t move. Literally.
The department released a video on Facebook on Thursday to attract some new recruits.
But it wasn’t your average video. Instead, the department jumped on the viral video trend and created its own mannequin challenge.
In these videos, everyone is supposed to freeze in the middle of an action. Basically, they are supposed to act like they’re, well, mannequins.
And Phoenix police didn’t miss a beat on this one. It essentially portrays the entire process of becoming a police officer, from applying to passing a physical fitness test, all the way to making a first arrest.
