Security Camera Catches School Resource Officer Attempting Popular Dance

Based on the surveillance footage, Bryson Lystrup may want to stick to his day job as a school resource officer.

When Officer Bryson Lystrup, a school resource officer with the Pleasant Grove Police Department in Utah, made his way to his local 7-Eleven, he was unaware that he would soon become a viral video superstar.

But that’s just what happened when Lystrup was caught on the convenience store’s security camera grooving to Silento’s infectious “Watch Me” song doing the popular “Whip” and “Nae Nae” dances.

When the store’s manager saw the surveillance footage, he shared it with the Pleasant Grove Police Department.

The department then posted the footage onto its Facebook page, along with this disclaimer:

“Warning: this video is a little hard to watch. Unfortunately it does involve one of our officers. We were alerted by the manager of a local convenience store about some suspicious behavior and the security video footage was obtained. To our community and to the internet as a whole, we apologize. We are looking at getting this officer some help ASAP. (His timing was way off).”

Lystrup has definitely been a good sport about the video, and says he hopes it helps bring the police department and the citizens it serves closer.

Check out the video below to see Officer Lystrup rock the “Whip” and “Nae Nae.”
