Is This CCTV Footage of a Customer 'Accidentally' Smashing Four TVs Real?

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

Somebody’s pushed the viral button on a video purportedly showing a customer accidentally knock over £5,000 worth of smart television in an electronics shop in Cornwall.

The video embedded below has got our suspicion senses tingling, because the shop in question, called HBH Woolacotts, appears to be a little too happy about the whole thing. Also, you’d have to be a serously special kind of clumsy to inadvertently knock over four expensive televisions, including one of those new-fangled curved sets.

Make your own mind up:

"Staff were devastated when it happened - I had been on a day off but came back and watched the footage,” said Mike Collins, the store’s assistant manager. “My manager just said 'you will never guess what has happened'. I was very shocked."

The company hasn’t confirmed whether or not the customer was made to pay for the damage. [YouTube via West Briton]
