Unfortunately, package stealing has become a common occurrence in the past few years as more and more Americans have taken to ordering products rather than shopping for them in stores.
Mark Rober, an engineer who helped to build the Mars rover, was tired of his security cameras capturing people stealing his Amazon packages from his porch, so he decided to take action. Mark spent six months working on his epic plan for revenge, and when it finally came time to test his new creation, his security camera captured every second of what went down!
In a video that has since gone viral, Mark explained that he had called the police about his stolen packages, but he was told that they didn’t have enough resources to investigate the incident. That’s why Mark decided that he had to take matters into his own hands using glitter bombs and fart sprays!
Mark began by constructing a fake Amazon package that included four different cameras to capture all of it’s surroundings as well as a GPS to track it’s location. He then put a pound of glitter inside that would go off like a bomb, and to increase the humiliation, he added in some fart spray that was designed emit a noxious-smelling gas in 30-second intervals.
Sure enough, thieves started showing up to try and take the package, and it doesn’t take long for them to regret it! The video has since been viewed over 36 million times in just three days, with people all over the world loving seeing these wannabe thieves get what’s coming to them!
