Man Robs Bank With Gun Shaped Video Game Controller

We love dumb people, and we love even dumber criminals...but this guy may have been so dumb it may have actually translated into brilliance.

A man in Mexico managed to pull off a successful bank robbery using an old Nintendo Zapper gun. 

Police in Hermosillo, Mexico say the man covered the Zapper with black tape to conceal the bright orange plastic and make it look more like a real weapon. 

Unfortunately for him the cops weren't fooled and took him into custody a short while later.  

The original Nintendo Zappers were made with dark gray plastic, which was later changed to orange to make it look less like a real gun.
