Who: Officer Charlie Kingery
Why we picked him: Woo hoo hoo! We love a new dance challenge and Indiana Police Officer, Charlie Kingery is a champ at the latest craze— “The Git Up Challenge”!
The new, viral dance resembles the classics like ‘The Electric Slide’ and ‘The Cupid Shuffle’ with lyrics like “do the Butterfly” and “take it to the left now, then dip”, reminding dancers of all skill levels, what comes next.
While the original video has over 5 million views, there’s something about a man in uniform, cutting lose before a hard day’s work that’s caught everyone’s attention. Officer Kingery’s challenge has more than 2 million views on YouTube alone!
The Challenge has gone viral since country rap singer, Blanco Brown, first released a tutorial on YouTube in May. Since then, people (including us!) have been trying out his smooth moves and posting videos to the social media video app TikTok as well as YouTube.
Fun Fact: ‘The Git Up Challenge‘ is Blanco Brown’s first song! Topping the Hot Country Songs chart and landing in the top 20 of Billboard‘s Hot 100.
