    Package Thieves Got A Face Full Of Glitter And A Lot Of Fart Spray Instead

    Instant karma.

    It's no secret there's an increase in package thieves. Particularly during the holiday season.

    Well, one such victim was Mark Rober. He’s an engineer who also happens to be YouTuber.

    So he decided it would be tons of fun to teach some crooks a lesson while filming the entire thing for his channel.

    First, he built a super impressive box that looks just like an Amazon package that had a GPS tracker inside.

    Then he rigged the box to spew glitter absolutely everywhere as soon as it was opened.

    Then came the fart spray. And a whole lot of it, too.

    There's also a very special homage to "Home Alone" involved. An extra level of mischief that's very much deserved by the thief.

    Now people totally want one of those rigged boxes as their own personal detractor!

    @Emojipedia @MarkRober You should sell this online for people to get revenge. I would buy one. I had a tablet stolen before.

    Others wanted Mark's "punishment" to go even farther.

    @Emojipedia @MarkRober @MarkRober this is brilliant! I’d be more aggressive in the punishment for the theft. What about something that stains the thief’s clothing permanently?

    And some wanted him to not blur the thieves faces. They deserve the shame.

    @Emojipedia @MarkRober Love this!!! Although you should show the thieves faces on twitter so they can be identified.

    Go ahead. Watch for yourself.
