Melissa McCarthy Shows Us How Not to Rob a Fast Food Restaurant

There have been a rash of robberies at South Florida restaurants in the past few months. Luckily, no one has gotten hurt, and thanks to surveillance videos and some good police work, most of the perps have been apprehended (we've been watching some old CSI reruns, lately).

And, because this is South Florida (otherwise known as the land of the weird), some of the crimes have been pretty funny. Like the guy who robbed a Palm Beach Burger King in an Obama mask.

Or the guy who tried to jump into the Burger King drive-in window, only to have the restaurant's employees grabbed him and held him down until police arrived.

So how do you successfully rob a fast food store? Well, we're no criminal experts, but we can say with certainty that you should watch what Melissa McCarthy does as a lesson in "what not to do".

In this trailer for her new film, Tammy, McCarthy is the worst criminal ever. While attempting to rob a burger place named Topper Jack's, she can't even hurdle the counter. Things get worse from here.

Watch McCarthy's comedic brilliance (and really, really, crappy robber skills) in this trailer -- set (naturally) to Coolio's Gangsta's Paradise:
