Viral Video Of The Day

Via Business Insider:

A YouTube video shared after Sunday’s parade shows a parade marcher getting his groove on with what appears to be a member of the New York Police Department. We’ve reached out to the NYPD for comment but haven’t heard back yet. The 12-second clip stars the unlikely duo dancing to along to Michael Jackson’s “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough.” The cop’s dance partner was a man named Aaron, who was marching with the Big Apple Softball League during the parade, explains the user who posted the video, Paige Ponzeka. The moment doesn’t last long before Aaron has to hurry back to the parade. Before he goes, Aaron affixes one of the league’s “I’d Hit That” stickers to the officer’s uniform and gives him a quick kiss on the cheek.

    Breitbarters Outraged – Mission Accomplished!!!

    Edit: They have trolled the YouTube comment section big time.

    • Gustav2

      And they are still kvetching and kvetching about the rainbow lit White House.

      • GayOldLady

        Ohhhhhh! They’re such party poopers!!!

    • JT

      These critters have been running nothing but negative items since the decision. What a source of gas.

      • Blake Jordan

        I have also noticed a major increase homophobic trolls on all pro LGBT related content on YouTube and Instagram…
        They really are so “distraught” about the SCOTUS ruling, it is pathetic.

        • ColdDesert

          Honestly, if that’s what they’re reduced to doing…being lonely internet bullies that no one listens to, I’m okay with that.

      • GC

        If only we could harness all that energy, we’d be able to replace our fossil fuel use overnight!

        (That would be a significant, positive step towards dealing with climate change, which would anger them even more… a positive feedback loop, a vicious virtuous cycle! A more civil society and lots of free energy — a win-win scenario!)

        • GC

          I remember seeing, a few years ago, a video of a car that ran, not on gasoline or petrol, but on vitriol. (Perfect for NYC or Boston rush hour!) It showed the driver angrily swearing at the other drivers, and an energy gauge going up. Don’t remember whether it was at The Onion or some other site.

          • Man_in_the_mists

            Dude, NO! That would mean Rush Limbaugh would have a career for the rest of his life.

    • Ginger Snap

      First time in a long time I’ve read comment on YT and It gave me a good laugh. I could almost see all their head exploding from my bedroom. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Bumping, grinding and simulating sex — Oh, so in other words – they were ‘dancing’. Oh nooooo, call the Baptist Morality Squad!!

    • BeaverTales

      Bumping, grinding and simulating sex:

      Only okay if you are a teabagger

      • DaddyRay

        They were taking on Stephanie Miller yesterday that Bristol is pregnant out of wedlock again (after getting paid 250K to talk about teen pregnancy) and that her fiancรฉe broke it off with her because it wasn’t his.

        • GayOldLady

          When I found out that she was pregnant I wondered if that was the reason her fiancรฉe broke off the engagement. I, personally, don’t care how many babies she has or with who she has them, but she needs to come down out of her pulpit and stop the finger wagging.

          • lattebud

            It is not her finger she’s wagging. More like her tail, like a dog in heat.

          • Reality.Bites

            I care about how many she has. Palins are unfit parents.

          • David Walker

            I was half-watching a movie the other night…I don’t even know the title. However, I heard the most wonderful line. Two people are arguing and a woman says, “That’s worse than a passel of Palins.”

          • D. J.

            That finger wagging is for Duggars

          • JCF


        • robirob

          There is nothing wrong with having babies out of wedlock … unless you’re a Palin and get money for lectures about abstinence and traditional family values.

          Judge and you shall be judged.

          • DaddyRay


          • D. J.

            I guess Bristol misunderstood what baby’s daddy said to her.
            He said: Let’s get in the truck
            She heard: let’s fuck in the truck.

      • Christopher


        • Gene

          THAT is vicious and acidic in tone. Well done God knows the whole igloo trash family are easy targets..but…this is funny
          Come sit next to me

          • Christopher

            Thanks! But I didn’t create it, just found it.

            Cheers! xoxo

      • Ginger Snap

        Just like out of wedlock sex that ends with pregnancy.

      • Ian

        So THAT’S how she got the pregs!

      • JoeNCA

        Doesn’t “every child need a mother and a father”?

    • Gene

      that’s why Southern Baptists hate sex…it could lead to DANCING! ๐Ÿ™‚
      (( ps..has never occurred to their bigoted minds that a buff masculing cop might WANT to bump and grind for a few hours with one of the men in the parade? nah…in their minds, gay men don’t have such jobs. Not to say he is gay or not, I don’t know, but, might be. or, just a straight guy who, unlike the losers at Bretibart, is just really comfortable with his straightness, our gayness, and up for some fun at a parade. that would scare them even worse! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Ginger Snap

        All my straight guy friends get down with a dance floor full of us gays and always leave having had an awesome time.

        • Gene

          I think you, and I, are lucky. We obviously hang out with REAL straight men. by that I mean heteros who are comfortable with THEIR sexuality and masculinity (as they understand it, live it) and they DON’T feel threatened by gay men.
          Happily, there are more and more of them. ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Ginger Snap

            I’m Bi when it comes to my guy friendships. I’m so glad I outgrew my bitterness towards straight guys that I had in my early twenties. I would have missed out on so much.

      • MC

        Why won’t Baptists have sex while standing up? Because people will think they’re dancing.

    • Mark Schildberg

      Dogs and cats living together! Mass hysteria!

  • delk

    Must be really nice to have nothing else to be worried about.

  • AtticusP

    Well, anything that makes Fundies’ heads explode is okay in MY book.

  • Pity someone didn’t make it a Vine so it could loop endlessly for their viewing outrage.

    • Bluto

      yeah, I have throbbing outrage.
      longer version, different angle:

      • StSean

        that funny moment when aaron reached his arms around the cops waist, realized he was within grabbing distance of his gun and quickly withdrew ๐Ÿ™‚

      • DonnaLee

        It’s even sweeter that another guy gave him a kiss later, thank you for sharing that.

      • JCF

        Hmmm, gotta say, from this angle, more suggestive that the cop is NOT straight! [Either that, or he’s got a “Bend Over, Boyfriend” strapping-it-on gf at home]

  • Bluto

    breitbartians are pissed cuz the cop is dancing instead of shooting an unarmed black man for sport.
    & yeah, I would hit that!

    • Ginger Snap

      I’d hit it and share him with my friends if the officer us up for it.

      • Ian

        So generous. I get next!

    • guest

      What you have said is a dreadful blanket statement: Cops shooting unarmed black men for sport. The black men in question were in the process of committing a crime. In large inner cities young black men are shooting each other with guns everyday. The city of Detroit was just listed as #22 in the 50 most dangerous cities in the world.
      Your Far Left leanings are leading you down the garden path. The very people you are defending might very well harm you. People like you are very naรฏve.

      • Ian

        Oy. A joke for fuck’s sake. Calm your tits.

        • Guest

          A joke,yes! But there’s alot of truth in it!

          • Bluto

            There’s a lot of truth in it because I wasn’t joking, as you abundantly highlighted.

      • Uncle Sal

        Isn’t it funny how much these guys all look alike?

      • Mark_in_MN

        Or those cops could, you know, arrest people committing crimes, even if they are not white. And leave people who arn’t committing crimes alone, rather than shooting them, too.

      • Prion

        Baltimore ex-cop Michael Wood Jr on brutality and racism

    • That cop is REALLY cute.

  • Wynter Marie Starr

    Oh, please. This is New York. The police assigned to the Pride parade, the West Indian parade and the Puerto Rican parade can often be seen dancing with the marchers. It’s great public relations for both sides and cops are also humans. Humans tend to dance when there is music. It’s practically encoded into our genes. As long as they continue to do their jobs, and don’t drink, who cares?

    • clay

      I notice that you did NOT list the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Good job.

      • Wynter Marie Starr

        Native New Yorker, Clay.

    • Oscarlating Wildely

      Hear! Hear! I was marching with someone who was not allowed to jump the rail to give some spectators a few give aways. Cop took them from her, started handing them out himself.

    • B Snow

      That cop did more in 13 seconds to improve the image of police than hours of community relations could accomplish. How can they be angry about that? Oh, wait, it’s Breitbart. NVM.

      • Wynter Marie Starr

        Absolutely. You can’t buy that sort of PR!

  • geoffalnutt

    Breitbarters outraged? All is right with the world.

  • JT

    Breitbart has been a source of toxicity on the subject ever since Friday. Whatever could be the source of that?

    Open your closet doors, Breitbart!

  • MBear


    • Ginger Snap

      Maybe if the did Kevin Bacon could do a sequel to Footloose.

  • Michael Abbett

    Officer dances with gay man = outrage. Officer shoots/chokes unarmed black man = just protecting society. The righties are so fucked up.

    • Todd20036

      Which is why they seem to be losing big time.

    • John T

      “They gave me a medal for killing two men / And a flood of troll outrage for dancing with one”

      • JCF

        [Killing two black men, that is]

        ^ For the (painfully true) win.

  • Todd20036

    That officer ROCKS!

  • SockMikey

    This warms my cockles!

    • B Snow

      Is that what the kids are calling them these days? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Puckfair52

    Ah well what do you expect from them Photo from google from Puerto Rican Day Parade. And cop getting hugs & kisses on St Paddy’s day Parade. He has her hat he has her hat shes out of Uniform OMG OMG he could have killed someone with that hat! He could have been a terrorist pretending to be Puerto Rican

  • GayOldLady

    That made my day! 50 years ago they were handcuffing us and throwing us into paddy wagons, today they’re frolicking with us in the streets. Now that’s progress.

    • gaymex

      That really was great. Innocent fun. I still remember the days in San Francisco when you could get stopped and booked for female impersonation if your hair was too long and wasn’t worn under a cap of some sort.

    • Gene

      46 years…and 1000 light years and another world. from Stonewall.


      • Gene

        ps…we won because gay old ladies and gay old men did not put up with it and demanded better, never gave in, and made those of us who are younger aware that GLBT people can live happy, decent and good lives.

    • DaddyRay

      I made the comment yesterday on the video

      Food for Thought: If this is how the Police interacted with the Gay Community 46 years ago at Stonewall there may not be a Pride Parade today

      • Ian

        I’m reminded of how the Jewish community marks it’s holidays. My ultra-reformed friend explained the concept as “they tried to kill us, they didn’t, let’s drink!”

        If I could have a religion do-over I’d be a ultra-reformed Jew for sure!

        EDIT My point being some of the worst things like the enslavement in Egypt or the burning of a temple or the birth of a nation or a riot cannot be commemorated and the victory celebrated without that struggle. Suffice to say, YAY! Us.

        • B Snow

          I heard it as “They tried to kill us, we won, let’s eat!” But your version works, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • McSwagg

      It was as little as 6 years ago. At the Rainbow Lounge on June 28, 2009 in Fort Worth, Texas.

  • ArchiLaw

    I’d call that good community policing.

  • Robincho

    This is plain and simple assault, I tellzya… Assault by a hardened criminal… Yum!

  • robirob

    I hope the cop will not get in trouble (I presume he was on duty?).

  • popebuck1

    Beating minorities to death doesn’t get a rise out of these guys. But engaging with a gay pride marcher in a spirit of fun? BLASPHEMY!

  • Ninja0980

    These same people flipping out over this would make all the excuses in the world if the cop was beating a person of color on camera.
    I loathe them, I really do.

  • Davidjs

    The loonie Christianists would have much preferred the cop mace that guy and then beat him to pulp with his nightstick.

    That the cop was human and joined in the fun is something that they cannot comprehend, especially the human part.

    • David Walker

      To be honest, I don’t think they’d comprehend the fun part, either.

  • Reality.Bites

    Normally I wouldn’t care about the personal life of a stranger, but I really hope it turns out the officer is straight, a church-going Catholic who is married two a woman and has two kids old enough to understand but young enough for the Breitbarters to be outraged.

  • Reality.Bites
  • Galvestonian

    VERY COOL ! The cop is a stud…

  • Mark

    Hey. It’s not just the girls. Cops just wanna have fun, too!

  • Mr. Enemabag Jones

    Breitbarter’s remind me of the guy who’s gay but closeted and homophobic because he knows he’s too ugly to get laid.

  • Blobby

    i might not hit that, but the cop could ‘hit’ me.

  • lattebud

    Wanna really melt down the breitbartians…

    Richmond, CA has seen a tremendous drop in crime. Everyone is excited until they saw this and realized the police chief, Chris Magnus, is gay and supports reform against brutality.

  • ColdDesert

    So would they rather see a cop beating the shit out of a gay dude? I’ll take my answer rhetorically.

  • Lakeview Bob

    God. I am so stupid. I thought it was so cute.

    • David Walker

      As compared to Stonewall a few years back. Or, for that matter, Selma.

  • David Ehrenstein


    • David Walker

      Yeah. He’s everything I’d want from a leader.

    • D. J.

      Just like Scott Lively and Robert Oscar Lopez and……..

      • David Ehrenstein

        Like peas in a giant seed-pod

        • JCF

          …or a human centipede-pod! [I must now spork out my eyes at this thought }-X]

    • Man_in_the_mists

      Hope he’s still enjoying the White Room.

  • Mike__in_Houston

    That cop is ADORABLE! What a nice smile! He can come arrest me any time he wants. I’d even move to NYC just to let him do so.

  • Ginger Snap

    I dove into the haters comments and they are just delicious. I do declare I just gained 10lbs reading them.

  • Ian

    Now THAT’S how you police the community!

  • pickypecker
    • billbear1961


  • DaveMiller135

    Apparently they haven’t seen dancing in, what, 40 years?

  • Gerry Fisher

    I remember one particular year in the mid-80s at Boston’s LGBT Pride, all the cops along the route looked very young, handsome, and terrified. I wondered if some cynical sergeant assigned all the “pretty boy” cops as a joke. Now the pretty boy cops have fan clubs and beefcake calendars.

  • CottonBlimp

    He’s probably not even gay. Straight guys who aren’t insecure or hiding their sexuality don’t mind joining the fun or being a bit of a tease.

  • John T

    The Breitbartians are offended because in their secret fantasies the white man in a uniform is always a brutal aggressive top, but the one is the video is dancing like a friendly power bottom and it makes them so confused. Right wingers do not handle cognitive dissonance very well.

  • Gay Fordham Prep Grad

    Should be part of the “I Love NY” tourist campaign.

  • billbear1961

    Other scenes of wild abandon–not for the faint of heart–followed . . .


    He could stop and frisk me anyday! I will COMPLY! ๐Ÿ˜œ
