CEDAR HILL (CBSDFW.COM) – Sometimes you find humor in irony. Other times parody is just as funny — just ask Cedar Hill Police Sergeant Larry Wise.
Many have seen the popular Lincoln commercial starring Matthew McConaughey.
He rides around looking dapper and speaking about strange generalizations that can be interpreted however you want.
Now see Cedar Hill police Sergeant Larry Wise’s version. With a little a bit of humor and that Texas drawl the police sergeants parody video is now going viral.
“It was supposed to be just an in house video for our awards banquet,” explains Sgt Wise.
But the likes on Facebook and views on YouTube are racking up. Making this spoof one of the funnier things we’ve seen any cop around North Texas do lately.
“There’s always a way to see the funny aspects of life,” says Sgt Wise. And that’s exactly the message Sergeant Wise is hoping to spread with the video.
In a time when communities and local police are clashing almost daily he says this should show many of them are community members with a sense of humor like the rest of us.
“We laugh at the same things, we enjoy the same things, and no we’re not just robots programmed to ticket and arrest.”
They also aren’t Matthew McConaughey, but some are halfway decent actors.
