This is what someone’s grandma would call turning lemons into lemonade (or making tacos out of a pretty pathetic robbery attempt).

Here’s how it happened, via KTLA:

The security footage shows three men breaking into a closed Frijoles & Frescas Grilled Tacos establishment on Dec. 16 and sacking the restaurant.

Greg Carlson, the general manager of the family-owned and -operated restaurant, was alerted by an alarm system when the burglary occurred.

When he got to the scene, he saw that the glass door was smashed and two cash boxes were stolen. Fortunately, they were empty.

“I thought to myself: ‘We’re going to have some expenses from this. I might as well turn this into something that will inspire people to come try our food,’” he told CNN.

The ad has since gone viral with nearly 4 million views, which means millions of people have now seen the burglars’ faces. Those guys picked the wrong place to try to rob.
