After having a package stolen from his doorstep, Rober chose to use his engineering background to serve up some retribution on would-be thieves.

Everytime the thief opened the package they were sprayed with glitter and swiftly abandoned the contraption.

But for anyone who's gotten a package stolen off a doorstep, he's now a hero.

When the thieves hit, his security camera captured the crime - but he said police didn't investigate because they didn't have the time to track the thieves down. Within seconds, they're covered with a "butt load" of fine glitter and repeatedly showered with fart spray.

Mark is a former NASA engineer that has created the greatest defense against those pesky porch pirates.

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

We also love that the creator chose a particularly amusing return address: the McAllister home from "Home Alone".

Mark Rober, who is an American YouTuber, spent four months creating a glitter bomb made of four smartphones, a circuit board and 453g of glitter. However, authorities have been slow to respond and the Federal Bureau of Investigation now keeps no national statistics on the issue.

In the video, Rober appears to use a custom circuit board, four smartphones equipped with Global Positioning System, a handy can of fart spray and a "butt ton of the world's finest glitter" to make the glitter bomb.

He engineered a fake package that looked like it contained an Apple HomePod.

"So the moral of the story is, just don't take other people's stuff", Rober said.

The video already has over 7 million views, as of Tuesday morning.
