Come on folks, you need to watch this! I’ve read before, and I’ve been there myself – you put up a post and can’t wait to see the reactions from your myLot friends - and you get hardly any viewers! I thought this video was just so funny but maybe the title didn’t appeal or I hid the real point of the post among the rest of the text. Anyway it has very few views which I don’t have an issue with really except that I think if you haven’t seen it you are missing out on a real giggle. So here is the link again to the New Zealand police department’s latest advertisement to attract new recruits. I do hope you’ll watch it. Edit: Egg on face. Here's the link: Duh!
With over 70 real cops, the police band, police cats, helicopters, and stunts we’re here to encourage a range of New Zealanders to join our team. We want our...

Isn't it great? I like the girl telling the pipe band to shush too. Have you ever seen NZers doing the haka? I feel sure you have. It's a Maori 'dance' but can be a welcome or a war dance or to celebrate just about anything. Worth googling if you haven't.

Well they certainly have a sense of humor! Here in the US, I would say most of the police recruitment video's would be pretty straightlaced..except there are a fewing dancing traffic cops that might be entertaining for a video!

So many funny bits to it. The crosswalk bit is good - and the pipe band being shushed.

More than just a giggle...a laugh. Funny but good. I wonder if there training is all that? Seems a lot of wasted energy to me! I like the part where the poor puppy dropped the bag...I supposed he got more that what he bargain for. The dancer i front of the old lady was pretty entertaining too. Count me in for recruitment too!

LOL I think there are always going to be times that somebody has to steer me; specially, since I just finished getting all the Christmas Ornaments in the right boxes. Now I'm not sure the tubas will ever come out again, as had to take every box out to find all the tubas, as had several in the wrong boxes, so others didn't have a box that they fit into in January. February and I can now decorate for the holidays this month.

@JudyEv The title of the discussion "If at first you don't succeed, hit 'em over the head with it" Sometimes people have to tell me more than once when I'm trying to do several things at the same time. Its the multi tasking that I do a lot of the time, so more can be done in a day or at least its my goal to get the important things completed.

@Fishmomma Oh, I understand now. Multi-tasking is all very well in some ways but it can take a lot of concentration. I hope you have a great day.

That is truly a weird video and I cannot see anyone thinking of joining the police because of it. What is with the gyrating boom box guy?

It's just meant to be a bit of fun. Maybe they're trying to portray themselves as having a fun, exciting time with a variety of occupations available within the force. If it doesn't appeal it's pretty hard to explain - and I don't mean to be unkind. Explaining a joke is never a good idea.
