Sometimes, people in high-stress jobs just need to let loose. And one New Jersey EMT knows how to bust a move in his ambulance.

A video called "EMT Voguing," shot from Jonathan Williams' dashboard camera, has racked up more than 800,000 views as of Saturday — less than two weeks after it was posted on YouTube.

Williams, identified by WCBS in New York, seems to be in a conversation with a friend on his radio when Rihanna‘s “Pour It Up” comes on and gets him particularly excited.

Williams breaks out into a series of dance moves, and can't seem to keep his hands on the steering wheel as he flails his arms. He even shakes his legs while trying to keep his foot on the gas.

The EMT was reportedly reprimanded by his boss, but Rihanna had nothing but good things to say about the spirited homage.

"This Paramedic guy just reminded me why God sent me here," she tweeted.
