Once in a while an attempted robbery will fail so spectacularly that it becomes necessary to thank the would-be robber for attempting the crime in the first place, thereby allowing the world to witness such astounding defeat.

A recent armed assault on the Mercadinho Cafe in Brazil started off simple enough, with one robber entering the establishment while a getaway driver awaited his assured success on a motorcycle outside.

It might suffice it to say that things didn't quite go as planned if this video weren't an absolute must-watch.
