A video showing a store throwing a surprise massive party (complete with a parade) for its 10,000th shoplifter has gone viral.
In the video, which is believed to had been shot in The Netherlands last week, the store manager can be seen eagerly peering into the CCTV monitors. Once he spots the female shoplifter, he radios security downstairs to hold the woman while he quickly runs downstairs with an employee carrying a sign.
Once downstairs, the manager hands flowers to the woman and says, ‘Congratulations … you’re the 10,000th shoplifter in this shop!’
Immediately a band starts playing, and the manager puts a birthday hat on the woman’s head and poses for a photo. Another employee then hands her a piece of cake.
All this proved too much for the roundly humiliated woman to bear, as she quickly exits the building with her cake, setting off the security alarm in the process. The band continues playing, and the store employees continue partying.
