The “Tala” dance challenge has taken social media by storm with a lot of netizens doing their own dance covers of the song popularized by Philippine pop star royalty Sarah Geronimo.

But there’s one dance cover that not only amused netizens but amazed them with his dancing skills.

Meet Patrolman Christian Mabini Dabuco of the Cebu City Police Office (CCPO) whose dance video already has 2.4 million views, as of this writing.

Dabuco told The Filipino Times in an interview that they were on a break while doing their daily rounds when he thought of dancing it.

“Akyat kami sa bundok tapos habang nagpahinga nag-take po ako ng video… Pawala lang po sa stress,” Dabuco told TFT.

He shared that he wasn’t expecting it to become viral. Prior to dancing, he first learned the steps. He only shot the video once and uploaded it on the same day.

According to Dabuco, he really loves to dance even way back his primary school days. He still makes time and performs as a member of the Police Regional Office Region 7 Dancers.

Netizens in the comment section called him an “idol”. Others teased and tagged their friends to also beat the police officer’s dance performance.

Dabuco’s video was shared 99,585 times since it was uploaded on Monday.
