The Carbonaro Effect: Inside Carbonaro – Secure Piggy Bank | truTV
Now, the rapidly
multiplying bunnies weren’t the only
animal-themed trick that day, but it was so long
and elaborate that we didn’t have time in the
episode to air this next clip. [ Air horns toots ] -What was that?
-The piggy bank. It does that
on its own? Yeah, it has
an alarm on it. Oh. You’re not saving
enough, so… You never saw this before,
the secure piggy banks, the extra-secure ones? No! Oh, they’re really cool. No. I don’t know why.
I think it’s ’cause I didn’t set the thing right
on the bottom. It’s like
one of those old — Here, take your glasses off,
and you can really see the… Wow, yeah. See how it’s like porcelain? Yeah, yeah.
Wow. It has the little sound
in there? Yeah. I mean, it’s just
a regular bank, right? But it has, like,
if we put a coin in it… Here, drop
a coin in there. [ Coin jingling ] So that’ll stay because
it’s set for more money. But the bottom has,
like, this — this little
computer chip in it. You see that thing?
Yeah. So, if you set this thing, it has, like,
settings on it for — Here, take the…
You take the coin out. So that was only set
for 25 cents, but if we
set that for more… Did someone make this?
Yeah. This was handmade
by my uncle’s — my uncle’s brother,
who is also my uncle. He made this in tech college
back in the ’80s. So if I lower that down, if I set it as low
as 25 cents… Here, let me
see the quarter. Yeah. But if you
put it in now… because it’s set for 25 cents,
now it will seal. What?
Yeah. ‘Cause it’s set so low. See, there’s that,
and then… Both of them will seal up
to whatever you have it set for. Wait a minute. Are my eyes
playing tricks on me? No, no. People would
set it for, like, however much
you want to save up to. That is such
a wise idea. Yeah. So, now it’s
set so you can’t… Oh, my gosh. You won’t
be able to take it out. Yeah.
That is so cool. My son’s
gonna be like… I never set as low, so…
I can change the setting… Oh, wait. Wait.
Now I can’t… How would we get
to the setting now? I have no idea. Do you have
to put more money in it? How? There’s no hole
in it now. I might have instructions
in the back. Hold on. Will you hang on
for one second? I have a…
Just hang on one second. ♪♪
