Few can deny that the hypnotic tones of the bagpipes often end up sending a shiver down your spine.
But have you ever seen a car full of Cops blowing the pipes whilst beating their drum? Probably not, but you will do in about 30 seconds!
The video below of our oppos (colleagues) in Western Australia unleashing some harmonic melodies was sent into us by one of our followers.
Even if you aren’t a fan of the bag pipes / drums then this catchy number might get your foot tapping in an uncontrollable fashion.
A post on the Western Australia Police Pipe Band & Supporters’ Association said:
“The best Christmas gift EVER!
“We have teamed up with the wonderful Kevin Bloody Wilson to record our Christmas single ‘The Outback Highland Band’, with all proceeds going to WA Police Legacy Inc.”
The video has been viewed almost 300,000 times since it was first shared just over a week ago.
For anyone tempted to allow themselves to be overcome with ‘rage’ at the thought of members of the emergency services daring to have some ‘fun’ whilst at work, then these guys and girls filmed this video in their own time.
Although, it would have been interesting to see the look on the faces of any wrong’uns had these guys and girls inadvertently come across something whilst filming the video.
Anyway, enough waffling from us, here’s the video in all of its glory:
Should you wish to buy the track, then the link can be found in the post above.

Before you go...
WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger? If you would like to help back our mission of reporting on fact-based news, then please consider helping to support us financially.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
