Beijing Traffic Cop Dances Cha Cha, Directs Traffic

Just when I’m about to give up on this blog, I come across this most awesome video that reminds me why I started this blog in the first place!

This video is of Beijing traffic police officer He Changqing, directing traffic and doing the cha cha in what is sure to be the patented “He Changqing Traffic Direction Method.”

Via ChinaSMACK, who also has translations of the comments left by Chinese netizens. They range from “so niu (awesome)” to “should be more professional.” Personally, I think if all of Beijing’s traffic cops danced the cha cha, it’d be great. Probably not any more orderly because of all the gawkers, but still more fun than it is now!

    That’s awesome! I agree, all traffic direction should be handled like this. Beats traffic lights!

    But… is it just me, or are the drivers ignoring him anyway?

    We have dancing cops in the Philippines too! :-) At least you can see the enthusiasm they have for their job.
