It's been ages since I've been bothered by a door to door solicitor, but it's obviously still somewhat of a problem in New Zealand. So much so that an energy company there has put together a great commercial featuring a prank, talking door knocker.

In this very creative commercial, the door knocker and even one of the lawn statues just plain don't like door to door salesfolk and let them know in no uncertain terms. This would, without a doubt, be the coolest thing ever to have in real life. Even though soliciting is illegal around here, it would stop the 50 people a week that stop and want to mow my lawn or do my landscaping.

I don't know how much business this ad has drummed up for the client, but it is funny and has gone very viral with over a million views. I think you'll want one of these door knockers for yourself.
