Fake package covers porch pirates in glitter and fart spray

Some Bloke Made A Glitter Fart Bomb To Get Revenge On Xmas Package Thieves

Having a package stolen from your front porch is infuriating, but a former NASA engineer has a wildly over-engineered source of vengeance.

Mark Rober took matters into his own hands when police wouldn't do anything about the packages stolen right off his doorstep. After the thief nabs it, it first gloriously sprays a pound of glitter when opened and then follows up by spurting out fart spray every 30 seconds. And judging by the almost 14 million views of his video after just a day on YouTube, he could give Santa Claus competition in a Christmas popularity contest.

Mark Rober said a woman was caught on his home security camera walking up to his door and stealing a package off of his porch. The entire fiasco is recorded via four smartphones that are connected to a circuit board that pings Global Positioning System when the package is jostled.

The glitter bomb decoy package is powered by four Android phones. The best part is that Rober used cameras and Global Positioning System technology to recover the device and use it over and over again, all while recording thieves' reactions. On every occasion, the thieves abandoned the package once it had been triggered and they or their property had been doused in glitter.

In keeping with the holiday season, he even drew inspiration from his "hero" and fellow prankster, "Home Alone's" Kevin McCallister, including his name on the box's fake delivery label. Rober concludes, "So the moral of the story is, just don't take other people's stuff".

Rober notes that the package was covered with shrink-wrap to make it look as though it had actually been delivered.
