Who says cops can’t have fun? A hilarious video of a deputy doing the Nae Nae dance proves that it’s possible to find a perfect balance between work and play. After garnering a reputation for being a highly professional and respected officer in his department, Deputy Tony Scherb of the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office made sure that he was going to gift his colleagues with something to remember him by.
Video of Deputy Doing the Nae Nae Dance Becomes a Smash Hit Online
After 29 years, Tony Scherb is finally retiring as the deputy of the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office. Throughout his colorful career, he has proven time and time again that he truly deserves all the respect and admiration from his colleagues.
In a rather amusing twist, the goodhearted officer became the star of a now-viral video recorded on his last day of service. It features the officer dancing to the hit song “Watch Me” (Whip/Nae Nae) by American singer Silento.
It all started when members of the sheriff’s office secretly installed an elevator camera after receiving complaints that it was malfunctioning. But in reality, they wanted to see how Tony would react when the pop song began to blast in the speakers.
Dance like no one’s watching
As you might have guessed, Tony began to bust out some serious moves—and it was all caught on tape. He even managed to lasso other employees to doing the same. As the video progresses, all four officers look like they were having the coolest elevator party in history.

Since the video of the deputy doing the Nae Nae dance was released, it garnered over nine million views and counting! Users could not help but fall in love with the amusing cop and his equally awesome dance movies. What made the video even funnier was the inclusion of Deputy Reed and other bosses of the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office.
At one point, their dance routine is interrupted when the doors open and more officers come piling in. It does not take too long for them to break out their own version of the whip and Nae-Nae.
Despite his newfound success as a viral star, Tony’s former colleagues will always remember him for his hard work and great personality as a sheriff.
“Tony is probably one of the most hilarious, nicest deputies I’ve ever met,” Jacqueline Kirby, media relations manager for the Sherrif’s Office, told TODAY.com. “He’s had a stellar career, and he’s going to be greatly missed. Just a quality person and a quality deputy.”
Maybe Tony could break out of retirement and consider a career as a backup dancer in the future?
