Prankster makes a ridiculous request at a Bunnings store – and fooled staff won’t stop until they send him home a happy customer
- Viewers in stitches after a man asked Bunnings staff for a ‘spirit level bubble’
- @dibzbaby posted the video of himself asking for non-existent item on TikTok
- The Bunnings staff seemingly unaware the item he is searching for isn’t real
- The persistent staff do their best to find the item, at one point offering to order it
A prankster has confused Bunnings staff and left online viewers in stitches after asking for help finding a product on the shelves that doesn’t exist.
The Australian man filmed himself asking the warehouse workers for a ‘bubble to go in his spirit level’ before he posted the video to his TikTok account @dibzbaby.
The confused Bunnings staff do their best to accommodate his request, seemingly unaware the item does not exist.
The first Bunnings’ staff member pauses in thought before she sends him to the tool shop section
The man filming the video clarifies that he is simply asking for the pocket of air that is used to determine how straight or flat a surface is.
He approaches one staff member and asks ‘do you know where I can get a new bubble for a spirit level?’
The Bunnings sales assistant pauses in thought before sending him to the tool shop section.
The man was directed to the tool shop section where the spirit levels are located
‘The only place I could think of is the tool shop section,’ she said.
‘That’s where spirit levels are so I’m assuming you’d be able to find the replacement around there.’
The TikTokker is then met by another sales assistant at the tool shop section who also does her utmost to help the man find the non-existent item.
‘I don’t think I saw bubbles on their own to be honest,’ the second Bunnings staff member said.
She then walks him down to the spirit level section of the aisle and confirms that ‘they’re all fitted, they don’t sell the bubbles on their own’.
‘Maybe a bigger tool shop? But not Bunnings,’ the assistant said.
The second Bunnings staff member then offers to order the non-existent item in for him
The trickster then persistently returns to the lady with a spirit level and asks if she can get the bubble out, before she confirms that they are sold as a ‘complete unit’.
The assistant then makes a phone call to another employee to confirm that the bubble can’t be purchased separately.
‘We could order them, but I think he wants them tonight,’ she said.
The man, by now clearly in disbelief at the efforts of the staff, wrote on the video: ‘The ending, they can’t be serious, can they?’
The spirit level bubble is what is used to determine how flat or straight a surface is as the air moves around in a small vile of coloured liquid.
The video has gone viral since it was uploaded on April 7 and has received over 200,000 likes and one million views.
