'Candid Camera': Sloppy Drone Delivery Shocks Homeowner

On "Candid Camera" homeowners were told that drones would start dropping off their mail... but there were still a few kinks to work out.

The drone dropped off his mail, but it landed all over the lawn in a heap. The mailman said, "That's perfect though because it's in your yard."

Luckily, the man was cracking up once he found out it was a joke and that he was on the national television.

Fans on Twitter were loving the segment too, some saying though that there's nothing funny about drone delivery, people would love that.

As Flavorwire notes, a fresh, new version of "Candid Camera" is back with hosts Peter Runt, the son of the original show's creator and host, Allen Funt and Mayim Bailik from the popular TV sitcom, "The Big Bang Theory."

To check it out for yourself, "Candid Camera" airs Tuesday nights at 8/7c on TV Land.

Anyone who believe that "drone service" is good for society are just plain stupid. First, it would eliminate thousands of jobs when it is perfected and secondly, snooping into your privacy would escalate. So some people should think about what they wish for. Really!!!

Was Peter "Runt" supposed to be funny, or is it just more poor editing? After all his dad was Allen "Funt".

I don't think it was meant to be funny. I think they need to hire proofreaders or maybe drones do that too. If so, it's not working.

Because it's so funny to torment people and then have a laugh over it at their expense...

I thought the originator of the series' name was allen funt or hunt or kunt. What was humerous 50 years ago is lame now, as is this new reality type show, watched the new one for 20 minutes and would sooner pull weeds before ever viewing it again. As for drones, they should be shot down upon sight, no questions asked. We have too many spying eyes on us already and they should also be eliminated , said with a smile on my face :).

In recent years we had much more entertaining sort of "candid camera from hell" show on MSNBC known as "To Catch A Predator," a guilty pleasure fun show where we got to see child-molesting perverts caught in the act of being themselves. Seeing those "hopeless romantics" making lame excuses for showing up with condoms, beer and maybe even some ganja and then being arrested by the police was always fun to watch! Compared to that Candid Camera is just an attempt to bring back reality-comedy of a bygone era. ☺

I remember watching Candid Camera when it was first on TV with host Allen Funt. We never missed it and I for one thought it was soooo funny. I can't wait to watch the new version. I already have the date and time marked on my calendar.

Don't laugh too soon. I can see the inept post office trying that. They can't get anything right. I feel for the poor workers because of the dumb decisions being made at the top.

I used to LOVE candid camera. So glad it's coming back on the air. That's what we need...just some mindless funny comedy. Can't wait to watch it.
