Man Mimics Super Bowl Commercial to Steal Thousands


In a commercial shown during the Super Bowl a man talking on a cellphone inadvertently holds up a store after telling the person on the cell phone they are being robbed. Timothy Connor made no mistake, however, he planned to hold up a Boston bank.

Mimicking the commercial he slipped a note to the teller. Then, talking only into the cellphone, he demanded money and took almost $6k from 2 banks and a store over an 8 day period starting just after noon on March 31, the day after Connor's birthday.

"Watching the surveillance tape, he mimicked that commercial exactly," said a police officer. Connor was arrested after driving down a street the wrong way in an unrelated incident. Police were able to match Connor's face to video tapes.

ASSESS this news: BLOCK this news. Reason:
  I hope this doesnt go the same route as videogames  
You know how people blame violence in videogames for todays crimes, I hope they don't blame funny commercials for crimes as well. I don't want to see ratings at the top of all my commercials.

  only $6K?  
What a loser. He should have tried for the big bucks so he could at least buy his way out of the situation (i.e. a plane ticket to somewhere else).
