The selfie stick will never be cool or hip, but it did actually do more than capture one man’s surroundings, it actually captured the moment he was pickpocketed.
The man, musician Diego Mino, was in Ecuador filming a visit by Pope Francis, an event that was attended by over a million people. While Diego is happily walking around with his selfie stick, a creepy guy in a black jacket keeps following him around, waiting to make his move.
You can see at the 1:03 mark the man clearly reach down and pickpocket Diego.
It’s one thing to steal, but it’s another thing to steal when you’re there to see the Pope. Not cool, creepy guy with too much hair product in his hair.
