WATCH: Pranksters Catch Would-Be Bike Thieves with Electric Shock

Looking to prank some would-be bike thieves, one pranking channel called TVTwinz decided to film a controversial video. The prank team rigs a bicycle seat with an electric current and then wait for some to try to take the bike.

Then they remotely send an electric shock right to the butt.

It’s not a high voltage shock, just enough to make the startled thief hop off and drop the goods—and result in some bad crashes and guilty parties running away when they’re confronted by the team.

Watch for yourself in the video above. Did these pranksters go too far, or did the thieves get what they deserved?
