Man uses NES Zapper covered in tape to rob a bank

Nintendo went out of their way to make sure the NES Zapper didn't look like a real gun, but apparently that can be fixed with a bit of tape. A man in Hermosillo, Mexico used an NES Zapper to hold up tellers at a bank. As you can see in the image above, he wrapped the Zapper in order to hide the distinguishing colors/labeling. Thankfully, the man was apprehended shortly after the robbery attempt, and is now being being investigated for 15 other crimes.

Thanks to ThatWaluigiDude for the heads up!
