This is the bizarre moment a motorist starts dancing in front of arresting cops and falls flat on his bum while trying to do the moonwalk.
The unusual street performance took place in the south-western Turkish province of Antalya and received mixed reviews, not least from the watching police officer who asks in the footage: “Do you call that a dance?”
According to local media, officers pulled the motorist over and asked him to step out the car and show his ID.

At this point, he suddenly started dancing in front of them. The incident was filmed by a local resident and shared on social media.
In the footage, the man is seen trying to moonwalk in front of an approaching cop before mixing up his footwork and finding some rhythm.
At one point, as he performs what appears to be the Funky Chicken, a policeman jokes: “The least you could do is give us a traditional dance.”
The motorist then attempts a long-distance moonwalk but loses his footing and crashes to the ground, drawing a chuckle from the cameraman.
It is unclear whether the motorist was under the influence at the time and reports did not mention whether he had been arrested.
However, netizens had a lot to say about the man’s antics. ‘Serkan’ commented: “Good tactic! The cops went along with it.”
‘Dadas’ said: “The police officer is very patient, if it was me I would have slapped him already.”
