Get into the giving spirit by watching this cop dance for the Salvation Army

The holiday season is known as a time for giving -- and this cop is pulling out all the stops to make sure locals are feeling it.

Officer Sean Bulow of the Cleveland, Tennessee Police Department busted a move for the Salvation Army's Red Kettle Drive.

The department shared a video on their Twitter page, saying it was part of a "friendly Battle of the Bells":

The drive ran outside a Cleveland Walmart on Monday, with the department giving out the first 50 donators of $20 or more a limited edition challenge coin.

Bulow's dance was so beloved by passersby that the department extended the drive into the next day. They said Bulow was "back by popular demand":

Bulow wasn't only killing it for the Walmart customers: the video of his dancing quickly went viral online. A local CBS outlet shared the video on Facebook on Tuesday and in less than 24 hours it amassed over 300,000 views:

While Bulow's moves are fun to watch, they also have a deeper purpose: to donate to people in need.
