New Zealand cops launch 'world's most entertaining video yet' to lure new recruits

Tri-State police departments may want to take a lesson from the New Zealand Police , which released its self-proclaimed "most entertaining recruitment video yet" on Saturday.

Filled with kilted drummers, pelvic-thrusting dance parties and entirely gratuitous flipping stunts, the quirky clip features about 70 officers trying to lure in new coworkers through the nearly 3-minute-long video's fresh approach.

"Police want to attract more women, Māori, Pacific Islanders, and people from all other ethnicities and backgrounds to better reflect the communities we serve," Commissioner of New Zealand Police Mike Bush told Australia's Special Broadcasting Service .

In less than two days' time, the video has racked up nearly 3 million views and 44,000 shares on Facebook.
