Doing it for the Gram is the most noble explanation for any and all reckless behavior. Your shenanigans will never come off as misguided when you explain your passion to share with your 100 followers. 

"You want to climb a crane? That sounds foolish and dangerous. And probably illegal."

"Yeah, but I'll get a photo for Instagram."

"Oh my god, you're a legend." 

The biggest legend of them all is Dominyk Alfonseca, a man who allegedly robbed a bank in Virginia Beach just to stack up the double taps. "For real, I didn't even do it for money, you understand?" he told WVEC. "I knew my page would get exposure."

Alfonseca doesn't even think he did something illegal. He explained that all he did is ask for the money, and the teller obliged. There were no masks or weapons involved in the one-sided transaction, and his note is politely worded. "I don't want to get her in trouble," he said. "Maybe she made a mistake, and I didn't make a mistake."


Regardless of who was in the wrong at the bank, Alfonseca obviously wasn't making a mistake when he shared a series of posts from his possible robbery. He took a photo of his note, a video of him handing the note to the teller, and another video of her passing over the money.

Dude said he wanted to get the attention of some of his followers who copied his ideas in the past. He wouldn't say what exactly that would accomplish, but nobody else could be stupid enough to follow his lead this time. Chalk that up as W.
