A recent announcement of retirement was made by Deputy Tony Scherb, who had previously worked for the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office for a total of 29 years. As the “highly professional” deputy stood in the department’s elevator, he made the executive decision to change course and go out with a bang. We got a really good shot of the scene because Scherb was dancing to Silento’s “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)” while the camera was rolling. Since then, there have been more than three million people who have viewed it.
Everyone who watches the man dance falls in love with him because of his moves. To their good fortune, he was captured on camera while they were in the elevator by themselves. When you are about to give up hope that anyone else will be there, Reed walks into the elevator just as you are doing so. It’s incredible how quickly she goes from being completely motionless to breaking out into dance, isn’t it? When their chief deputy walks into the room, there is an abrupt break in the music that has been playing. Everyone in the room who witnessed Scherb’s hilarious outburst would have found it funny for the same reasons. As soon as the boss leaves, they promptly resume their “stanky leg” dance, and a second jovial sheriff soon joins in with them. This is just another fantastic illustration of the power of acting without prior planning. Tony may have, in the end, realized that being a backup dancer is where he was meant to be.
