Art has imitated life for Counties Manukau police.
Police Eagle helicopter crew were talking on camera about water safety when they were called to a real rescue on the Manukau Harbour.
The officers were starring in a video about dangers at sea ahead of Labour Weekend.
It took them a moment to realise the call about a kayaker in trouble was real- rather than a stitch up.
They stopped filming and rushed to the harbour after the alarm was raised about 3.20 pm on October 20.
Helicopter crew soon spotted the kayaker, who was plucked to safety by the Coastguard.
The kayaker was reported to be safe and well.
