Bike Prank Gone too far?
Look, we get it. Bicycle thieves are annoying. They take your wheels, man. They take away your precious wheels and use them for their own amusement. Honestly, we sympathise with anyone who’s had their bike stolen. We really do. It’s not nice having your stuff stolen.
However, and this might sound a little bit controversial, we need to remember that bike thieves are people too. I know we all like to paint them as cardboard cut-out villains, and say things like “if I ever meet the guy who stole my bike, I’d rearrange his fridge magnets, and egg his nan,” but when it comes down to it…they’re human beings just like us.
Why are we suddenly showing a thinly-sliced sliver of sympathy to bike thieves? Because of this hidden camera video uploaded to YouTube by Twinz TV, that’s why. The video is titled “INSANE ELECTRIC BAIT BIKE PRANK IN THE HOOD!” and, basically, we don’t like what it’s about. We don’t like the fact that it features an electrified bike saddle that sadistically zaps opportunistic bike-grabbers in the crown jewels.
