Glitter bomb creator Mark Rober has admitted that portions of his video were likely staged ― but not by him, he says. In a Thursday tweet, Rober said two incidents in his original video that purported to show his booby-trapped package exploding on thieves appeared to have been staged by friends, unbeknownst to him. He said he was “gutted” when he realized this, and hoped it doesn’t “taint the entire effort as ‘fake.’”

Old school: All that glitters is not gold.

New school: All that glitters is not the bomb, real or staged.


So now they are faking fake news.

SOB....there's nothing left to believe in.....

Should have used cow whumpus instead of glitter.

Is weaponized cow whumpus legal in your state?

There are whumpus cats here in the Desert. I am unfamiliar with whumpus cows, but if their scat is as bad as a whumpus cat's, putting their poop in any populated area would violate the Geneva Convention.

Let Petomane - I've heard the Wampus Cat is often found in the company of the North American Snipe and El Chupacabra.

You are correct in the comparison. When alone in the desert we don't worry about finding a chupcabra or wampus (often spelled whampus) cat. Usually we fret they will find us.

Geez, you mean there was something fake posted on the Interwebs? I am gobsmacked! Say it ain't so, Virginia!

I was wondering why he continued to live in a place where there were so many creepy people who steal packages in broad daylight.

I used to bullseye Wampus Cats in my T-16 back home.

I thought that was a good idea. (And very amusing.)

The latest report from JPL about Mars indicates the presence of large ring structures of precious stones and a dusting of glitter almost everywhere

Apparently, efforts are underway to tiara-form the planet.

This reporter has also learned that the "fart spray" he used did NOT contain actual farts.

Stay tuned for further reports as news (and wind) breaks...

A loud groan for PB.
