WATCH: Gardaí strut their stuff in latest Running Man viral challenge Newsdesk Newsdesk

The good people at the Garda College in Templemore prove they're up for a laugh as they post their own version of the 'Running Man Challenge'.

Around the world, law enforcement agencies have sent their best dancers out to bust a move to Ghost Town's 1996 hit My Boo.

In this video, the gardai who took part appear to dance at various locations around the college.

The challenge has crossed the Atlantic from the US where it was started by two New Jersey teenagers, Kevin Vincent and Jeremiah Hall.

Speaking on The Ellen Show (which helped to give the already viral dance an extra boost), they said they invented the hilarious dance because they were bored in finance class.

The dance, which is like a shuffle, has been tackled by a host of US sports stars and celebrities including Maryland basketball players Jaylen Brantley and Jared Nicken.

Brantley and Nicken said they made the video because “basketball is such a grind, especially at the college level, so we just try to keep our teammates loose in the locker room."
