Summary: I got upset that my package was stolen so I made a glitter bomb revenge package.

They are soft-

I make videos like this once a month all year long while supplies last:


  • I've officially peaked. I'm @MarkRober on Instagram and Twitter.

    • Cops: It's just not worth doing our jobs.

    • +Mark Rober Hi! Your video is amazing 👍 Please tell me, which program did you use for engineering this?

    • You need to press charges against all of the would be thieves if possible.

    • You did. I wish you would replace the fart spray with permanent non toxic ink that smells like a skunk (does one exist?)

    • Mark, why not make a larger version that looks like a TV? They’d probably take it home and then it would be all over their house! 🤣

  • It's crazy that each person's reaction is either "OH, HELL NAW!!!", or "WHAT THE FAAAHHHhhhh". Their reactions suggest as if stealing someone's expensive package isn't what's fucked up. Shame on him for getting his revenge.

  • If this man ever creates an engineering college, I would apply in a heartbeat

  • There lucky all they got was glitter. interesting video gave me some nice ideas

  • Why are people just stealing packages

  • Make it with some sort of tagging dye AND sell this! So many people would buy it

  • Ingenious!

  • Haha. What’s that smell?! This is fabulous!! Too funny. 🤣🤣🤣🤣. Serves em right the thieves!!

  • How to catch a thief stealing a cheap package: spend hundreds making a bait package.

  • I'm waiting for the stink spray, should have been constant.

  • I beg that you make more of these with even worse punishments for the people who steal it. You're the hero of Christmas

  • You’re my hero

  • OMG! This is brilliant! I love it! Take that you leaving bastards! I wish I could do this. Our neighbours steal and open our letters & steal our parcels. I bought gifts for a friend who had a new baby, and the pigs next door didn't't give us the parcel. Kitty poo over their fence works well too!

  • Only thing that could have been better is if there was crazy glue sprayed out too so the glitter would stick lol

  • OMG! You need to sell this!

  • I love it, but I would have rather you have some vomit inducing (or worse) gas emitted. Make the thieves sick, or.......

  • You're the shizat!!!


  • Man. Seems like that last guy scored 4 free smartphones.

  • Tendencias #1 En Uruguay🇺🇾

  • 8:00 beep beep beeep

  • i subbed because of this xd

  • More evidence that police are near worthless.

  • 6:52 *WARNING* Earrape (Headphone User)

  • You should have done skunk spray.

  • Auntie Beeb brought me here.

  • Hats off to you, Mark!

  • mark rober you are albert einstein #2

  • DUUUUUUUUUUDE you need to patent and market this!!! If so, delete the phones and update the 3D printed portion to hold Go-pros (for those who really want to record), however, now the issues is how to press record on the go pros. The simple fart spray and a voice recorder should be enough. This is amazing, I do not have video surveillance so i was not aware of this issue.

  • If you sold a simplified version of this I bet people would be too scared to take packages after a while

  • I'm not American but I'm amazed at how people still risk being dishonest in a country where laws work and there are well-enforced punishments! *The problem lies in the human being, regardless of his nationality!* Tragic!

  • i wish i was as intelligent as these fellows. id like something like this for thieves in our neighborhood

  • I like how they get all "offended" because someone dared to punish them for their thievery.......douchebags. 1) should have added itching powder (fibreglass) to the glitter 2) should have used bear spray along with a can of neon pink spray paint

  • Btw, if I was a thief, once I saw the Apple logo I wouldn't have wanted it anyways. Except maybe to sell it to some isheep.

  • Congratulations! Excellent way of getting revenge xD

  • This was awesome!! I think you should make this for the rest of us to buy!!!

  • I'm in awe - layer upon layer of majesty.

  • All I want to know is how many of them were charged with theft after this? Justice served?

  • I would buy this thing!

  • "Who you had in here??" LMMFAO

  • Nearly 7 Million views in less than 24 hours... congrats dude!

  • More evidence that Mark Rober is solidly in the Chaotic Good category. I would imagine that the combination of surveillance video, package video, and GPS data would make investigating several of these cases a LOT easier. Also, finally a good use for glitter. It's like the special ink they supposedly put in fire alarm pull handles. It will NEVER come off.

  • THIS IS LIT! 👏👏👏😂😂

  • Every detail of this design is near perfection. The trip switches for the glitter motor, the four facing camera design, the geo fence to turn the cameras on, the fart spray for almost guaranteed recovery of the box, the GPS to find the dumped location. AND the fact that he chose a method of revenge that does no actual damage to anything so he can't expect a lawsuit (which probably wouldn't happen anyway). Ingenious! Mark, you are the quintessential ID-tvr! Science, learning, and entertainment all in one.

  • Shut up and take my money. Name a price and I will pay it.

  • OMG,..just found this channel,..subscribed!!!

  • Awesomeness!

  • There are engineer's and there are NASA engineer's. This is revenge level 1000

  • Try the same, but with a double barrel shotgun next time.

  • to the children who say physics and engineering is useless: THINK AGAIN

  • Mark please post this on GitHub... They best way to end this sort of problem is make it not worth stealing the items. P.S. You are my hero

  • Best unboxing video on ID-tv, hands down.

  • I hope the people who stole see this video

  • This is genius! I need this on the channel!

  • Semtex and steel shrapnel would have been a more permanent solution to theft.

  • Where do you live that there are that many scumbags!? Oh that's right. 'Merica.

  • 👀Ctfu too funny😂😂

  • Version 2.0: Add expanding foam that sticks to EVERYTHING

  • "Change that shade, ya filthy animal!" XD

  • I feel like you could have been meaner and have the skunk gland abstract spray out instead of fart spray. But they might do irreparable damage to all fabrics.

  • This footage is golden!

  • The sign up and pay page connected with your link isn't working. Attempted to enter purchase info 2x and got an 'Oops something went wrong' message. My entry was correct, my card isn't the problem, seems like it's your pages issue. Sorry wanted to join, maybe I'll try again another time...but probably not in 9 hrs and counting ;-)

  • That package thief has some explaining to do to his girlfriend with that much glitter lol

  • How about a goddamn frag grenade

  • Damn. Number 1 on Trending Mark!!

  • Fill that bad boy up with the ink powder from printer cartridges

  • brilliant! funny! a must-have for every porch everywhere!

  • b but glitterbomb in a car is not very healthy for the thief

  • Well done, gave me some good ideas. Should put Anthrax in it next time.


  • 3.5k thieves disliked this video.

  • This is GLORIOUS!

  • Lmao my guy has a lot of money to just buy 4 phones like that

  • What's that stuff that hunter's use that is really just fox piss? The smell will make you wish you were dead. Load THAT up instead of the fart spray.

  • Dude I saw this on the news

  • I love the second and third thieves who act all incensed because they actually faced some kind of punishment for being thieves.

  • Wow, I thought America was a safe place...

  • What kind of neighborhood do you live in dude? Permanent red chalk for chalk lines you can buy in any hardware store.


  • No one else finds this guy annoying in the traditional "annoying youtuber" sense?

  • Fantastic! We love you 👍

  • please keep posting footage of to see followup video or criminals getting arrested.

  • Amazing.

  • Why isn't Amazon funding this?

  • Gypsies steal my stuff, i wish i could capture them like this.

  • Besides being impressed by the amazing innovation that went into creating this device, I am utterly shocked by how often it was stolen. Initially I suspected high jinks because really? What sort of fool gives a running dialogue while tossing out "trash"? If genuine...well, kind sir, your town is full of shitbirds. Hopefully you have acquired a post office box or similar for all deliveries.

  • Yes this is great! What the hell is wrong with people? Didn’t your mom teach you that thieves are the lowest of the low!?

  • Should of filled it with itching powder lmao

  • 1on trending

  • Where can I buy this

  • I wish they see themself lmao

  • The downvotes are from package thieves.

  • Your channel should be at the top not some spoiled little 8 year old boy who apparently reviews toys LOL.

  • Amazing but next time use fire.

  • So you say that stealing packages is basically not punished?

  • lol You are brilliant!💖💖💖

  • When a person that suppose to help you(police) doesnt even want to That just makes me angry

  • So from the up and down thumb ratio so far (360K up, 3.5k down), we can determine that ~1% of people are serious thieving bastards!

  • Looks like 3.5k are the aholes requiring a visit with a baseball bat.

  • "Keep the change you filthy animal" that got me hard. Hahahaha. I feel satisfied with the justice being served.
