Still a better love story than Twilight: WA police release romantic video for graffiti vigilantes

For those of you who have been despairing at the lack of woeful government-funded viral videos of late, fear not, the Western Australia Police force has delivered in spades.

Not since the Department of Finance attempted to make accounting great again has a video been so awkwardly delightful.

Viewers voyeuristically watch a couple do on the best date ever – complete with smiles, flowers, the promise of pastries and even a takeaway coffee.

Part way through viewers must be wondering how on Earth the couple afforded such delights and, as the woman asks, “What IS the special occasion?”

“Remember those guys who were tagging the bus stop?,” the male suitor says before the WA Police cut to gangland scenes not witnessed since Underbelly graced our screens.

Chillingly realistic gangland scenes

“I was sick of them doing it and tagging, so I reported them. I didn’t realise that we’ve got a reward.”


Now if viewers will excuse Dr Mumbo, he needs to catch up on what’s happening at the Department of Finance.
