If you’re feeling extra ballsy on April Fool’s Day, Jack Vale’s 'How to Steal a Purse' prank might be the perfect gag for you to try out in public. In the video, Jack the prankster doesn’t actually go after anybody’s personal belongings, but he makes it look like he has every intent to. Vale poses as a novice bag stealer and the premise of the hilarious prank is pretty much spelled out in the first few seconds, where he walks by a mall security guard and loudly asks Siri how to steal a purse.
Vale does this with several other items, making it extremely obvious when he loudly asks Siri "how to steal sunglasses off of a man’s head," as he walks by a man wearing sunglasses on his head. People give the wannabe criminal some wary looks, but nobody really seems threatened.
