For an engineer with a YouTube channel – who graduated from BYU with a bachelor's degree – the frustration of losing a package became an opportunity to glitter those who were willing to take items off his porch as well the public could go to No. 1 on the YouTube Trend List and collect more than 9 million views in one day – and that was fast.
At first glance, it may seem a bit difficult to believe that someone could build a glitter bomb that would spread sparkling goodness and record the experience as the porch pirates finally open that package and Rober still has the footage restored. For without the glimpse of the experience of the apparent thieves, the joy of the glitter would be lost.
But as he explains in his video, he overcame these design challenges and produced a package that records video from four sides of a box, which then glitters into the cars or houses of the apparent thieves and bombards their personal lives. Rober also added a fart spray answer from the package to not offend the 11-minute video.
"You just feel hurt somehow," he said, taking packets from his porch. "When they open the package, I just want to celebrate their career choice with a glitter cloud."
As online shoppers pick up their Christmas gifts in the last few days of shopping, she found the idea among the viewers who watched and watched and watched and watched.
In the recorded footage, Rober shares his video, most thieves throw a swear word and give away the package – but after the glitter splitter has already been recorded, the footage sent the cloud to laughter and posterity.
Rober's YouTube page has an "About" section stating that he studied at BYU and then received a master's degree from USC.
"I worked 9 years for NASA JPL, 7 of which worked on the Curiosity Rover (I made a video about it, you should be careful because it's probably my favorite of all my videos)."
