Porch pirate payback

Glitter Bomb 1.0 vs Porch Pirates

Porch pirates are running rampant around here (greater Denver) and I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re also operating in your city. Even if you haven’t been a victim of these sleazy thieves, you’ll appreciate the glitter bomb revenge created by this engineer, Mark Rober.

I wish we could all buy one of these, but I suspect the price would be prohibitive. Still, somebody out there could make a fortune selling some kind of decoy package “bomb” for the holidays. Locals have reported leaving out packages filled with dog poop, etc. But the glitter … extra fine, at that. A stroke of genius. That stuff will haunt them for months.

Update, Dec. 21, 2018: Reports this morning say one section of this video was faked by some some acquaintances without Rober’s knowledge. He subsequently deleted the segment and re-uploaded the video. The deleted portion can be viewed on Gizmodo. Rober issued an explanation and apology.
