World's strangest, most deliberate bank robbery caught on tape

I saw this on Chinapoly, Marketplace's blog on China written by Rob Schmitz, Marketplace's man in Shanghai. It's amazing.

I don't think anyone was injured, and some have even speculated that the video is a piece of viral marketing for a glass company (which I doubt). Regardless, if you have five minutes to spare, see for yourself:
