Beaulieu had one stipulation: Middletown Police Chief Rodney Muterspaw and the canine featured in the video had to get one doughnut. In the lip sync video, Muterspaw is told there’s one doughnut left in the breakroom, but when he opens the box, he realizes the pastry has been eaten by the dog.
Slamka said Beaulieu wanted to thank the officers for their service.
Muterspaw said he ate one of the doughnuts Wednesday morning, just as the woman had requested.
Every time someone does something positive for the police, Muterspaw said he’s impressed and thankful.
“It’s amazing the spirit of people and how they do things like this for us,” he said. “It may seem small to them, but it’s huge for us and we really appreciate how much fun she had with the video.”
The Middletown video has been one of the most watched lip sync challenge videos in the U.S., according to the city.
Police departments across the country are issuing and answering a lip sync challenge.
