DECATUR, Ark. — A firefighter's kung-fu style video has gone viral.

The Decatur Fire Department posted the video on Facebook of the rookie firefighter dancing to Carl Douglas' "Kung Fu Fighting" disco song.

"After a long day of closing roads and directing traffic, the rookie gets a little bored but knows how to boost the moods of all the firefighters," the post read.

The firefighter, who was getting tired and delirious while responding to bad weather over the weekend, said crews put music on the truck's PA system and he started dancing to lighten the mood.

The video has been viewed more than 4 million times.
