David Seymour is an ACT candidate for Epsom.
On Monday, he unleashed a "get to know me video" on YouTube.
Online, the video is being shared left, right and centre.
It currently sits at over 3500 views, many of the online comments referring to the video's production values.
Slow zooms, multiple locations and camera turns are all used in excess, mimicking something you would see on a television show like Tim & Eric.
3 News joined Seymour as he went door knocking in the affluent Auckland suburb of Remuera, to talk about making the video and the response.
"The thing about making a video that may go viral is that you don't know you're doing it until it's too late," Seymour said.
