You might have noticed police departments across the country have been trying their hand at lip syncing in recent weeks.

Minnesota departments are no different, and we think there might be a contender for the best effort put forward so far, from the Olmsted County Sheriff's Office.

What starts as a fun exchange on a fishing boat turns into a Ferris Bueller-style parade starring Sheriff Kevin Torgerson as the lead character.

He lip syncs along to The Beatles' "Twist and Shout" (as Ferris Bueller did) atop a sheriff's patrol boat while a parade follows in his wake.

It was uploaded on Sunday, and as of Tuesday afternoon it has been viewed more than 150,000 times on Facebook.
