The Malaysian viral “shoe-stealing prank” has spread to China and gave birth to a new version where people pull a “jewelry-stealing prank” on unsuspecting jewelry clerks.
In the clip, a person will pose as a potential buyer of a piece of jewelry. They ask to try on a necklace; once it’s already on, the prankster makes a slow dash across the room – usually towards the door – that would then prompt the clerk to take quick action.
After realizing that it’s just a prank, the clerks usually laugh at themselves and sometimes even cover their face from embarrassment.
