Guy Builds A Glitter Bomb Fart-Spray Package To Get Back At Package Thieves

December 18, 2018

This is a video of ex-NASA engineer Mark Rober discussing the build of his glitter bomb bait package that spreads a full pound of the finest-particle glitter he could find and follows it up with fart spray. He then shows the result of the package being taken. Admittedly, that's a pretty solid build. Way too expensive (it also has four cameras inside) and over-engineered, but solid. Call me old fashioned, but I like to disguise myself as a bush and chase after package thieves with a baseball bat. Shhhhhh -- here comes somebody. RAAAWR -- WHAT THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU'RE DOING?! Oh shit, my bad, wait -- come back! Dammit, there went my pizza.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Andrew, Ian and MSA, who agree apparently revenge is a dish best served with glitter and stank.

    Lots of middle class people porch pirating. That's disturbing.

    Make this kit cheaper and start selling these. But perhaps with teargas instead of fartspray. Next time, set up an automated handgun that shoots anything that carries the package outside a specified perimeter. People like that makes me think "hold your ground" laws are actually decent idea.

    Replace the glitter with fleas.

    i feel like if i actually mailed this to myself and let it get stolen I'd somehow be the one arrested

  • Douchy McDouche

    This is great but add a pinch of anthrax next time.

    I'm skeptical.

    Glitter instead of dye bomb, fart spray instead of pepper spray, and the guy who (allegedly) doesn't know he's being recorded narrates his feelings in the parking garage (to whom?).

    I think this is theater.

    "Thinking out loud" is a thing. I do it all the time. Especially when I'm alone. *shrug*

  • KingCraigers

    What if we just start leaving actual bombs for package thieves? Like, small enough to do localized damage but no collateral? Bet people would stop pretty quick.

  • Tigerh8r

    Are you wearing a hoodie and avaitors right now?

  • Bling Nye

    Fucking BRAVO, man. I have the weirdest justice boner right now.

  • Munihausen

    Love this - great work. I appreciate how offended these thieves are.

  • FearlessFarris

    Yup. They just feel such an entitlement to your belongings. They don't even know or care what's in the box in most cases.

  • Ollie Williams

    Where the fuck does this guy live that there are this many people who steal packages? Jesus. I guess it's nice to know I live in a decent neighborhood.

  • scott19

    He lives in Winnetka, Illinois. It's a very fancy suburb of Chicago. I looked, and his house is probably at least 1.5 million, judging from the map shown, the general surrounding properties and Zillow. I guess folks assume that rich people are getting gold dubloons overnighted so they go to swipe from their porch.

  • scott19

    Changed my mind. The map definitely does not show an area that matches up with the backyard and front porch scenes. Just a fake map with the movie house as the starting point.

    Los Angeles... *shudders*

  • FearlessFarris

    Should have flung nail polish and sprayed a fine mist of live flu virus.

    Package thieves are the absolute worst.

  • WhiteEagle2

    Nail polish, yes.
    Viruses, no.

  • FearlessFarris

    How about at least a really prolonged and miserable strain of the common cold?

  • Ollie Williams

    Anthrax is the only solution.

  • WhiteEagle2

    Well that escalated quickly
