What Do America’s Funniest Home Videos And SecureMyStuff Have In Common?

This week's post is written by Penny Jackson, Marketing and Sales Specialist for SecureMyStuff and Kenton Brothers... Every Sunday night, at my 9 year old daughter's insistence, my family gathers around the TV in our living room to watch America's Funniest Home Videos. With all of the commitments our family has throughout an average week, we rarely have time to just enjoy each other’s company and share a laugh.  We look forward to this weekly tradition as it lets us relax and have a good chuckle before another whirlwind week of work, school and sports commitments. Recently, we were watching AFV host Tom Bergeron present us with hilarious footage sent to ABC from all over the country and I noticed that one of the videos supplied happened to be from a security camera.  I realized that funny security camera footage isn’t all that unusual and it made me also think of TV shows like “World’s Dumbest Criminals.”  Those shows THRIVE on silly clips that happened to be picked up by security cameras. So now I’ve got this all-consuming desire to catch someone doing something really amusing on our cameras here at our offices.  I mean, wouldn’t it be great to win that $10,000 prize, or even the $100,000 prize and a Disney vacation for my family, just by submitting a funny video captured by our security cameras? Our SecureMyStuff Trash Cam alone has picked up some funny nuggets of security camera outtakes.  In fact, a few weeks ago we all gathered around my computer monitor to giggle over the live security feed of our local dumpster diver digging through our dumpster in broad daylight.  The funny part wasn’t that he was digging around in there, but that he literally had his entire body upside down in the dumpster, with only his feet dangling out over the edge.  It was funny in a cartoonish sort of way. That’s one ambitious dumpster diver. Two weeks ago our Trash Cam picked up video of someone trying to physically move our dumpster.  As soon as motion was detected by the camera, the system sent us an alert that something was happening at the dumpster.  Our dumpster is chained to the side of the building, so we were all curious to see why someone was trying to move our dumpster.  As we watched the live feed online through the SecureMyStuff web site, we got quite a show of these guys using our loading dock/ ramp to practice trick bike jumps. Now I know these aren’t the best examples of funny videos caught by security cameras, but now I’m bound and determined to watch each video alert from our camera with new interest.  The great thing about the security cameras like the ones we offer at SecureMyStuff is that you have the ability to watch your property online, and you may even get lucky and have something entertaining to share with others (or enter to AFV for a big cash award). Take a look below at some of the hilarious security camera captured clips I found on YouTube. Have you captured something funny, unbelievable, or just plain stupid on your security cameras?  Share it with us! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-y8Sd3l96c&feature=related
