Lady Antebellum is equally amazed at the lip-syncing police in Middletown, Ohio whose video recently went viral on social media sites.
Lady Antebellum Reacts To Viral Ohio Police Video
Last week, the band tweeted a link of the Middletown Police Department lip-syncing to "Need You Now," a song released in 2010.
This #NeedYouNow lip sync is amazing! ️️https://t.co/3wqeMFr5Th — Lady Antebellum (@ladyantebellum) July 18, 2018
The viral music video was posted on Facebook on Wednesday, July 18. As of this writing, it has been viewed over 7 million times and shared by over 172,000 profiles.
Most of the reaction has been positive. People were completely enamored by the cops who completely broke down crying because someone ate the last piece of doughnut.
The drama did not last very long, however. Around the end of the video, a woman enters the precinct carrying a fresh box of doughnuts for everyone to enjoy until, of course, their supply of the sugary goods run out again.
The Middletown Police Chief, Rodney Muterspaw, shared that the video was filmed for an hour. Initially, some members of the staff were a little reluctant to join the viral video but, eventually, everyone enjoyed the experience. He added that it is important to show the public the softer side of the officers.
"If we brought out some smiles, then we did our job," Muterspaw told Journal News.
He also admitted that true to the stereotype, the Middletown Police loves their doughnuts. The police chief said that they always have boxes of doughnuts in their break room.

Lady Antebellum Attending Group Therapy
"Need You Now" was released eight years ago, but Lady Antebellum continues to be active in the music scene. The country band is about to embark on their "2018 Summer Plays On Tour." They will be on the road performing in different cities over the span of three months.
In an interview, the group explained how group therapy has kept their bond strong throughout the years.
"I think when bands don't talk and let out some of that stuff, it's nice to have ... an unbiased professional to be like, 'Right there, man, your tone — you see why that probably hurts their feelings?'" Said Charles Kelley to Today (via The Boot).
The "Summer Plays On Tour" kicks off on July 26 at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts in New York. Lady Antebellum will also play in venues in New Hampshire, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, and more. Tickets are now available via the band's official website.
