VIDEO: NYPD Officer Dances the 'Nae Nae'

Sometimes, you’ve just got to "Whip" it and hit that “Nae Nae”.

A video posted to YouTube on Sunday shows an NYPD officer busting a move with a group of block partygoers to Silentó’s “Watch Me.”

Officer James Ferrazzo from the 79th Precinct grooves front and center in a crowd of more than a dozen Bed-Stuy neighbors, raising one hand and shaking it.

Ferrazzo said he was persuaded by a teen to join in the fun at the June 26 celebration.

“I couldn’t say no,” the 27-year-old said.

“I like to throw a football around with the kids and interact with the community to have them see us in a positive way, to show them we’re just normal people just like everybody else.”

While he said he’s not a big dancer, Ferrazzo explained that he picked up the song’s dance moves from his young kids. No word on how good he is at the "Stanky Leg."

The hip-hop craze has celebrities and athletes alike doing the Nae Nae, which is reportedly based on Martin Lawrence’s Sheneneh Jenkins character from the '90s sitcom “Martin.”

We can’t help but imagine the epic showdown between Ferrazzo and this fellow NYPD dancer.
