Murfreesboro Fire Rescue and Police Departments released their Lip Sync Challenge video ay noon Friday. Watch it below.
The two departments collaborated with country rap musician “Big Smo” to fulfill multiple requests from social media followers to join in the lip sync challenge fun spreading across the nation.
Smo, a huge supporter of public safety and military personnel, jumped at the opportunity to assist the departments with the challenge. His song “Workin,” which has millions of views on YouTube, was selected for its relevance to both agencies.
CityTV’s Michael Nevills and MFRD Firefighter and drone operator Jeff Clementi filmed the entire video and got amazing shots of both agencies at some familiar locations in Murfreesboro including the Doug Young Public Safety Training Center and MPD’s new Headquarters.
As for Smo, this was a rewarding experience for him. “It’s moments like this in your career that you know you are on the right path,” he said. “We all have heroes in our lives…those who fight for our freedom like my father did, but we also must never forget those who protect us on a daily basis…our Fire Rescue and Police personnel. It was my pleasure to work with these two departments.”
