A viral video is doing rounds on social media that is being dubbed as the funniest of 2020. The video shows a botched up robbery attempt where three men trying to steal gold from a jewellery shop in England get trapped inside the store. Some netizens are also calling it the worst planned robbery in the history of robberies and by taking a look at the video, one can understand why. In the video, three men trying to steal from a jewellery shop struggled to escape during the raid where one of them even got trapped inside. 

The viral video

The video starts with a man in a blue jacket entering the jewellery shop followed by two other men. The man knocks down the shop assistant before starting to loot and while he continues, the assistant gets up and runs towards the washroom before locking herself in. After the assistant locks herself in, the robbers start to panic as they are scared that she might inform the cops. One by one, the robbers press the escape button and run for the exit, without holding the door open for the next person. The final man gets trapped inside as he can be seen banging at the glass door in distress. An unsuspecting passerby then holds the door open for him while he presses the exit button.
