Unusual. According to The Guardian, a thief visibly ill-inspired to try to imitate Assane Diop from the Lupine series by robbing a bar. Result: 21 euros of loot and a passage through the prison box.
The series are definitely at the head of some. While Squid Game worried the Ministry of National Education because of its impact on children, Netflix productions inspire people all over the world … and sometimes in unusual ways.
As in Italy, where a little zealous thief explained to the police that he was inspired by Lupine and his hero to rob the bar of his city, as we reported The Guardian. It is dressed in a leather jacket reminiscent of Assane Diop’s that the 21-year-old man went to the scene of his misdeed.
There, he waits for the bell of the adjoining church to ring before smashing one of the windows, with the idea of camouflaging the noise. But hurts himself when he puts his arm through the glass. Once in the bar, the man grabs a huge booty – 21 euros – and takes the opportunity to steal a bottle of orange lemonade (why not?).
Back home and full of money, our poor burglar realizes that his injuries are too serious, and then calls for help. When he wants to justify himself on the state of his arm in front of the police, he explains that he was attacked and robbed by three people … before bursting into tears and telling the truth. He reveals to them that he has carefully studied the techniques of the character played by Omar Sy in order to copy them, without however achieving the coup du siècle.
Also according to the English media, the man had already tried to rob this same bar, a few years ago. Unlike Diop in Lupine, our thief has made a big mistake.
