Pablo Rochat documented his dastardly plan by filming himself posting the stickers at various locations and staying put to see the results as unsuspecting passersby attempted to retrieve the apparently discarded earbuds.
The people pranked seemed to see the funny side of the trick, as did most of those who enjoyed the clip Rochat shared on Twitter. “That is the best thing ever,” one delighted commenter chimed.
“Should've gone with the Pro. No one will pick up the regular ones anymore,” another joked.
Others were less amused though, dismissing the stunt as “littering with extra steps.”
The secret to successful hiring is this: look for the people who want to change the world.
