MMM… Traffic Cops

13 Jan

This week it took me a while to find something, because ReGi telepathically stole my idea. I was thinking of using something from the movie Flushed Away. What do I find after coming onto WordPress? That ReGi has already done her blog post using a funny compilation of Flushed Away clips.

(There may be a chance we’re spending too much internet time together.  😉  )

It’s a good thing, though! Because I couldn’t use what I had originally planned I had to go on the hunt. After searching high and low and not finding anything that particularly caught my interest, I thought about the old Candid Camera show. Now there was some comedy. After watching about a dozen clips I came across this gem. Four traffic cops set to music that matches their individual styles of directing an intersection.

It’s cute, musical, and (I think) humorous.

Enjoy!

I had heard stories about how traffic cops used to be so cool to watch, and how they each had their own entertaining way of signalling the drivers. Those stories had not prepared me for seeing that cool display. Just from watching that, I think it would be awesome if they brought that position back in certain intersections.

      Aren’t they?! After I finished the post I spent some time watching other traffic cops.

      On my comment about thinking they should bring them back, there still are some traffic cops in really heavy traffic areas. There are some college towns back east that have busy four way stops and lots of foot traffic. Those cops dance around, too. Although in my opinion they don’t quite have the same flair. 🙂

        Enh. Dancing these days isn’t what it used to be. Still, it’d be fun to go play tourist and watch them for a little while. 🙂
