LAPD Zombie PSA Hopes to Take a Bite Out of Crime

Zombies are certainly shambling into advertisements and now, even public service announcements. The LAPD recently made a don't-be-a-victim-of-theft PSA titled, "Invasion of the Zombie Bandits!" and they're hoping it cuts down on car break-ins. Did you know that over 400 cars per week are broken into in LA? Neither did I until I watched this video. Zombies want your iPad and your purse, so lock your cars!

Thanks to some amusing pop culture placements, such as: a husband reading "Fifty Shades of Grey" and referring to his iPad as his baby; and, cheesy 1970s police show background music and special effects, the video is pretty amusing. Maybe you'll even learn something? Much thanks to io9 for sharing this cool find.
