An Garda Siochana have just released their version of the 'Running Man Challenge' a craze for police forces around the world to post videos of themselves dancing.

The dance, which is like a shuffle, is set to My Boo by Ghost Town DJs and had already become an internet phenomenon last month.

But it really kicked up a notch when earlier this month cops in New Zealand posted a video of themselves doing the dance and they challenged a host of other police forces if they could do better.

Since then police forces all over the globe have taken part, and now our own Gardai have joined the craze.

They, of course, called out the PSNI.

We don't know if this is going to be this summer's Harlem Shake or Ice Bucket Challenge, but it is well on the way.
