No, the breakdance move name you’re looking for isn’t “The Fuzz,” though after this video of British police officers getting their b-boy on, perhaps it deserves to be.

Several London police in hallmark yellow safety vests wound up in an apparent dance-off at the Notting Hill Carnival, which runs Aug. 25-26. During the unscripted performance, the officers juke and jive, finally settling onto the ground in a bopping lineup. Among the moves identified by The Guardian, the officers appear to first uprock, then shift to winding, before sitting like paddlers in a longish canoe to “row the boat.”

The YouTube video of the performance, titled “Notting Hill Carnival 2013 Police Dance Off” — presumably grabbed with a phone and posted by someone named MOOFBulleh — has racked up over 460,000 views since going live Sunday.

According to Sky News, the officers’ identity remains unknown, and a Met Police spokesperson declined to comment.
