In true better-late-than-never fashion, the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office has joined in on the lip sync challenge with a close to nine-and-a-half minute video that has Sheriff Margaret Mims singing Blondie from her desk, while a dude in a doughnut costume roams around robbing downtown coffee shops.
Eventually, the “coffee crook” gets busted and the video tracks his way through the system until he is sentenced by a bass playing judge (who actually happens to be an attorney) to the Lil Flip tune “Game Over.”
The video was produced and directed by Valley PBS.
And because this challenge is obviously going to keep going, the sheriff put the call out to the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office and the Kingsburg and Kerman police departments (Kerman PD is already teasing a vid of its own).
