The Los Angeles Police Department has enlisted the help of zombies to scare people into protecting their cars.

The police drew inspiration from the hit TV show "The Walking Dead" to create a public service video. Despite its low budget and questionable dialogue, the seven-minute film has already proven to be a hit online, with 15,000 people having viewed Invasion of the Zombie Bandits on YouTube.

What's next? Zombies for "Stay in School"? Zombie 'Don't Do Drugs' videos? Whatever it takes to get through to people I guess.
