Police officers are as much a part of our lives as breathing; if they weren’t around, our communities would be out of control! These five videos feature the men and women in blue, some showing a not-so-realistic depiction of the officers we know and love.
But the videos are fun, nonetheless.
Keith Urban – “Cop Car”
This song jumps right into the story of a guy and girl driving where they shouldn’t, and facing the consequences.
“It’s very hard to find new ways to serve love songs. They’ve all been done, you know? We’ve heard them all,” Urban said in an interview with radio.com. “But never have I heard the song written from the point of view of a guy who’s in the back of a cop car with handcuffs on, watching a girl go completely redneck crazy at the cops. And he’s like, ‘I am getting so turned on right now.’ So, I love that song.”
Lady Antebellum – “Downtown”
This is about two girlfriends looking to go downtown and “get so crazy they get arrested,” which is where the sub-par policemen come in. The girls, however, find it harder than they thought to get arrested.
Jake Owen – “Tell Me”
This video takes you into the life of Officer Owen who crosses paths with some wanted characters and he pulls a Barney Fife and gets himself locked up. Watch for the twist at the end (it might involve a standoff).
Dierks Bentley – “5-1-5-0”
This video kicks off showing folks slopping around in mud pools with their trucks, four-wheelers, and even intertubes. But just wait until the police get involved.
“If you watch those mud-bogging events on television or YouTube, you see that those people have the times of their lives,” Bentley told The Boot. “We just figured we’d go down and do some crazy things for the video. Plus it gave me a chance to take my truck down and hang with these people all day long and play music.”
Justin Moore – “Lettin’ The Night Roll”
This video shows Moore and his real-life girl, Kate, in a flirtatious wheel-squealing car race down a small-town road. But it quickly turns from car race to car chase. It’s a follow-up to Moore’s video his song, “Point at You,” which also features Kate.
