Footage of an elaborately failed convenience store robbery went viral earlier this week. In a video originally uploaded to CTV News, a young duo fends off cops in a tense in-store showdown in Alberta, Canada.

Variations of the video have proliferated, but none can rival this edit made by Twitter user Omar Villegas. They've overlaid music and audio from Metal Gear Solid 2, and it works brilliantly.
