Officer Chris Bianez brought his acclaimed dance moves to National Night Out parties in the Collin County city.

Bianez is the Plano police officer who’s nifty line dancing was captured on video and has been seen more than 668,000 times on Facebook.

“Nearly a million people have seen that video,” Bianez told CBS 11 News. “I’m shocked. I’m shocked, but most of the comments have been favorable.”

The new viral video star says he always brings his boom box when he rolls out on the streets of Plano. “If we can bring music it just makes people happy.”

“This really brings the human factor and makes the ‘officer’ much more relateable to people,” he said.

But it’s his dancing that really turned some of Tuesday night’s crime watch parties into something memorable.

The 18-year veteran makes it look easy. He’s having fun, but it’s a job he takes seriously.

When asked if he worried that bad guys wouldn’t take him seriously Bianez said, “Not really. When we’re talking about serious things like safety and crime you have to find the humor.”

Bianez attended three of the Plano’s National Night Out parties and most attending agreed he was the life of all of them.
