Falmouth's Gangnam Police Go Viral!

Sexy officers dancing in Falmouth with their fanbase!
In Cornwall a Gangnam Style charity video made by Falmouth police officers has gone viral, raising over £8,000 toward transforming the life of a disabled boy.

Sergeant Gary Watts cajoled colleagues into helping him re-create the Psy chart hit, to raise money for young Joshua Wilson. On Monday afternoon the video was released on YouTube; since then viewers have donated £8,600. The money will fund adaptations to Joshua's home, to help meet his needs.

Sgt Watts said the team were “absolutely overwhelmed” and thanked everyone who’d donated, watched and shared the video, adding: "When we’d finished editing we didn't think people would watch it, but the feedback has been tremendous."

Dancing with Gangnam Gary were PCs Barry Nicholas and Chris Vincent, together with PCSOs Ellie Grey and Chris Braddon; for the filming, all were given permission to wear uniform.

It’s a truly generous act by the bobbies which has brought smiles to thousands of faces. As well as helping a good cause, Gary and his company have done wonders for plod relations with the wider public. To watch the vid:

And don't forget, if you run into any of the troupe on Falmouth's streets pull a Gangnam move on them - they’ll love it!
