MacBook Thief Begs for Forgiveness After His Embarrassing Video Leaks

Print comment Post Comments
"Boy, I wish I could've caught him doing it. I'd have given anything to catch that asshole doing it. It'd been worth him doing it just so I could've caught him doing it."

In Pulp Fiction, Vincent voices his displeasure that someone -- a gentleman resembling a portion of feces and lacking genitalia -- keyed his vintage Malibu. He goes on to describe the vengeance any one of us feels when we're the victim of a crime. The degree of retribution that we wish was instilled almost makes us wish the crime was carried out before our eyes, so that we may apply, shall we say, a more physical type of justice.

Well, after a thief stole a MacBook Air from 18-year-old entrepreneur Mark Bao, he wasn't able to provide a curbside beat-down that Vincent undoubtedly would have resorted to. But he was able to make the guy look like a fool to hundreds of thousands people.

Two months after his laptop was ripped off, Bao discovered he had remote access to the machine and perused its browser's history. As it turns out, this genius crook didn't stop at taking photos of himself and posting them on Facebook, like other dimwits. He recorded himself popping and locking to a version of T.I.'s "Rubber Band Man."

From there, Bao learned the guy lived close to his dorm at Bentley University in Waltham, Massachusetts. But rather than immediately reporting the thief to the authorities, he decided to have a little fun and publicly humiliate the guy's dance on YouTube. "Don't steal computers belonging to people who know how to use computers," Bao writes.

It wasn't long before the thief -- as well as 376,000 YouTube viewers -- saw his embarrassing dance. Crumbling under the humiliation, he not only returned the laptop, but he also submitted an apology to Bao.

And he begged that the video be taken down. Courtesy of The Next Web:

With a victory so sweet, it's imperative that we all install security software like Backblaze -- which Bao used -- to target all future laptop thieves.

At the very least, we might discover the next winner to So You Think You Can Dance.
