YouTube viewers divided over grocery store stunt: ‘You’re really stealing’

Laugh 4 Life is a popular YouTube channel with 1.17 million subscribers who tune in to check out some of the group’s pranks. 

The channel’s most recent hit “Stealing People’s Groceries” is quite the doozy and clocked in at almost 200,000 views.

“Sometimes, when we’re just about to pay for our groceries, we realize we forgot to buy something,” the YouTube caption read. “But why go back and look for it, when the customer behind you has exactly what you need?”

The stunt featured an actor performing as a rude customer at a supermarket.

She started out by taking a woman’s groceries right out of her cart and then opened the package without paying. Then, she stole another man’s item and when he demanded that she return it, she refused. 

At another point, the prankster used her shopping cart to repeatedly shove a woman’s cart, then walk away. Next, she opened a shopper’s package of cookies, ate one and then gave it back to the person. There was no end to the woman’s rudeness, which only seemed to perplex or infuriate the other customers. 

The commenters seemed split on whether the video was actually funny or too mean to laugh at.

“This girl is savage,” one person commented. “We need a part two.”

“You weirdo. How can it be a prank when you’re really stealing people’s food?” another added.

“Been wanting to do that for years!” someone else said.
