WATCH: Tullamore Hospital staff produce hilarious 'Lip Sync' walking video

It's all part of a 'Get Walking' initiative

The staff at Tullamore Hospital have shown they are good sports for a great initiative in this new video promoting walking and a healthy lifestyle in the workplace as part of the Healthy Ireland campaign. 

Everyone from doctors and nurses; to porters and administration staff, took part as they lip synced their way around the corridors and grounds of the Midlands Regional Hospital in Tullamore. 

They posted the video on Facebook with the message: "Our choir along with our HSE colleagues were asked to help make a short video to promote walking in the workplace for the Love Life, Love Walking Day. As you can tell we had great fun Walking and Singing to the The Proclaimers, so come and walk with us this Valentine's Day."

Some of the staff went into full Peter Kay Amarillo mode as they stomped around the grounds to the beat of '500 Miles' by the Proclaimers. 

The choir at Tullamore are also planning further surprises as they plan to sing a love song in the hospital this week to mark Valentine's Day.

They went viral last year after they performed a 'flash mob' impromptu concert in the run up to Christmas.
