This genius YouTuber set up an elaborate glitter bomb for unsuspecting porch pirates

This man is a hero and deserves an award.

Porch pirates are literally the worst type of human beings on this planet. You buy something from a place like Amazon, they deliver it to your doorstep, and then some asshole out of nowhere decides to steal it.

This is precisely what happened to YouTuber Mark Rober when one of his packages vanished into thin air. And even though he had video surveillance of the culprits yanking the package from his doorstep, the police couldn’t do anything about it. Shocker.

Well, thankfully for Rober and his experience as a NASA engineer, he was able to take matters into his own hands and set up an elaborate trap for any prospective porch pirate looking to make an easy grab.

How it worked

To get things rolling, Rober got his hands a HomePod package and equipped it with a GPS tracker, built-in accelerometer, and four smartphones to record the thief’s reaction. Oh, did I mention the package also contained a glitter bomb and fart spray? Yea, that’s the icing on the cake.

Once the package is opened, the box emits a nuclear bomb of glitter all over the thief and then emits fart spray every 30-seconds to give the thieves some incentive to throw the package away. This is the point in time where Rober recovers his package.

Don’t take other people’s stuff

In the video, a total of five thieves got hit with the bomb and boy, the reactions to the bait box are absolutely glorious. One of my favorite reactions from the whole video was from one guy after the bomb goes off, “come on, bro.” And then the fart spray goes off and he eventually throws the package out of his car.

As Ruber notes in his video, “the moral of the story is, just don’t take other people’s stuff. Not only is it not cool, but on the plus side, you’ll never find yourself in this situation.”

Was justice swiftly served? What’s your favorite reaction in this video? Let us know down below in the comments or carry the discussion over to our Twitter or Facebook.
