Thanks a lot Linda,

I saw your comment for the first time,

Yesterday a friend of mine here posted the 7 moves of this song. Later I checked and found that the police also dancing on same beats, so I posted it here.

I wanted to post tweets as well but it doesn’t work here. So posted screenshots along with tweets and videos.

Blessings and regards
