As the challenge has grown, so too has the elaborate nature of the videos, as can be seen with Coral Springs PD below who enlisted the help of a local dance troupe in their effort.

The challenge was quickly accepted from people everywhere, including sports stars and celebrities, but it seems to have struck a chord with police departments ever since a New Zealand force accepted the challenge.
