Mark Rober, a former NASA engineer who worked on the Mars Curiosity rover, had a package stolen from his doorstep. Sadly, his case isn’t uncommon, especially during the holiday season when Amazon boxes are being left on porches across the country.
While most of us would just report the missing package to Amazon and move on, he couldn’t let it go. “If you’ve ever been in a situation like this, you just sort of feel violated. Something needs to be done to take a stance against dishonest punks like this.”
So Rober spent the next 6 months engineering up some vigilante justice, in the form of a bait box that would douse the would-be robber with “a buttload” of super-fine glitter, along with some fart spray for good measure. Once the trap was set, it was just a waiting game.
Lucky for him (and us), it didn’t take long for someone to snatch the box from his doorstep, and the results are absolutely hilarious. Watch the video above, and get ready to laugh out loud again and again as these thieves get what’s coming to them! 🙂
