JERUSALEM (AP) — Some Israeli soldiers may have to face the music for a viral video of them dancing on duty.

A video of the soldiers stopping a patrol in the West Bank to dance to American electro-pop singer Kesha's hit "Tick Tock" has been removed from YouTube. But Israeli TV stations picked it up and showed it repeatedly Monday.

The YouTube user who posted it identified the dancers as Israeli infantrymen in the tense Palestinian city of Hebron.

The video shows six soldiers patrolling as a Muslim call to prayer is heard. Then the music changes, and they break into a Macarena-like dance.

The military called the video a "stunt" and said the troops' commanders have been informed. That could mean their next dance will be "Jailhouse Rock."
