Ha! We like it. No word on whether it really dissuades thieves, but the creator does offer this anecdote in the way of endorsement:

This anti-theft device is not guaranteed to work in any way.
However I have stuck them to my shiney new red bike and can confirm it hasn’t been stolen yet. 13 days of not being stolen in London probably equates to 7 years of non-stealing in the friendly countryside.
