“Kicking” Bike Thieves in the Butt – the Exploding Saddle Prank

By Angie Ng

For everyone who’s ever had a bike stolen and wanted to get even, the pranksters at TwinzTV have come up with a hilarious way to “kick” bike thieves in the butt.  So an unsuspecting bike thief gets onto a “bait” bike and thinks s/he’s gotten away with the theft.


That’s when the little surprise, composed of a 12V battery and a seat that looks like an airbag, comes into play.  Using a remote control, the guys at TwinzTV cause the seat to blow up, causing most thieves to fall off the bikes… with painful buttocks.
