Whoops: Clumsy Shopper Accidentally Destroys $6,000 Worth of TVs [Video]


Well…this takes ‘you break it, you buy it’ to an entirely new level.

A surveillance camera captured a shopper accidentally knocking over FOUR  television sets at the HBH Woolacotts electronics store in St Austell, southwest England, on Sept. 29.

In the clip, the customer can be seen crouching down to get a closer look at one of the TVs. He gets a little too close and knocks it backwards into another set. Startled, the customer backs up into two more TVs and knocks them over as well.

via Huffington Post:

“Staff were devastated when it happened,” the store’s assistant manager Mike Collins told the local newspaper, The West Briton. “My manager just said ‘you will never guess what has happened’. I was very shocked.”

It’s not clear whether the customer paid for the damage caused to the sets. A store representative told the North Devon Journal that the TVs have now been sent off for repair.

The electronics store posted the footage to its YouTube channel on Thursday, and the incident has attracted international media coverage. Some viewers, however, have suggested that it was staged for publicity.

The Huffington Post has reached out to the store for further comment.

Watch the clip below. Do you think this was real or staged?
