Pinellas County, Clearwater, FL – On Saturday, police were called to Publix at 1295 S Missouri Ave in Pinellas County, where management claims two males were pretending to slip and smash open gallons of milk and orange juice.

This is not the first time this stunt was pulled by the two. They also recorded themselves doing the same stunts at another Publix location not too far away, which is how they were caught.

What the two did was called “Gallon Smashing”, a new “fad” to hit the Youtube and other video spots, where people will record themselves pretending to slip while holding a gallon of milk or orange juice, and smash them on the ground in hopes of busting them open. The ones who record these videos claim they are entertainment and comedy. But there is nothing funny about vandalism.

Nicholas Nye, age 18, and Jason Bonvie, age 18, were caught by management and were forced to clean up the mess they made and were arrested and taken to the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office. Authorities have stated that “Gallon Smashing” is a crime and whomever is caught doing this, can be charged with vandalism and theft among other charges. But the only charges made by Publix was Criminal Mischief.

When asked why they were going around destroying property, they claimed they thought it was funny and they were trying to win a youtube video prank contest to become famous.

Here is a video of what they call “Gallon Smash”.

    In a country where thousands sleep hungry on the streets everynight, these idiots thought smashing perfectly good milk is funny? Hope they have fun in jail.

    The problem is these kids have never had to work a menial job, so they think leaving a mess like this for someone else is hilarious.

    In the age of viral fads, we need new laws that cover harmful memes. There really should be a specific crime for starting a meme that causes damage or harm, and additional crime for being a copycat of it. Criminal Mischief doesn’t really seem to cover it well, because it is something that ripples outwards and spreads in damage as it is copied. It is it’s own thing.
