Bike thieves get punked

HOLLYWOOD, CA – Twin brothers Jeremy and Jason Holden are would be crime stoppers who use their passion for video and love of laughter to make a painful point. Crime really doesn’t pay!

In the video, the brothers have fashioned an ordinary push bicycle with electrified prongs in the seat and sensors on the handlebars, and have left the bike in a public place for the taking.

Upon grabbing the bike, looking around to ensure no one is watching, unsuspecting would-be thieves take the bike, hop on, and ride away. The joyride doesn’t last for very long!

The brothers are hidden away in a tree with remote controls in hand that operate several video cameras that are recording all of the activity.

When the thieves are shocked their reactions are nothing short of hysterical and in typical “punked” fashion, they do whatever they must to get off the seat. Some of the thieves go flying over the handlebars and others jump off in time to crash into nearby fences and trees. The looks on their faces are priceless.

Once the thieves are thwarted from their getaway, the brothers chime in with harassing commentary, “did you try to steal a bike” and “what happened buddy”?

The amusing footage is aired on TwinsTV, the brother’s YouTube Channel as part of an upcoming film project that is talked about on their site. With nearly a million followers these modern day heroes, ‘ahem’ goofballs, might just be making a difference in making would-be criminals think twice before committing another crime.

While most of the crime stopping pranks are done for thrills without intent to harm there are occasions where things don’t go as planned.

In an effort to bring awareness to child kidnapping and abduction the twins acted out the kidnapping of the own cousin. In spite of letting the police in Sequim, WA know they were creating their public service announcement (PSA) the young men were arrested and charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct in summer 2014. They upset a lot of people, leaving unknowing parents angry and scared.

The prank got them in lots of trouble, but like their own pranks, the charges backfired and catapulted them into Internet fame.
