This man just demonstrated how NOT to sneak drink into a country

Caught rapid.

AT FIRST GLANCE, this fellow doesn’t look like he has anything to hide.

But as Saudia Arabian customs officials discovered, he was actually trying to sneak a rake of drink into the country.

As you can see, the brave soul sellotaped several bottles to his legs and hoped for the best.

Unfortunately, Saudi Arabian customs foiled his plan and shared the photos on their official Twitter account.

Nice try, lad.

Alcohol is strictly prohibited in Saudi Arabia and smuggling it into the country can land you in serious trouble. (A British man recently spent one year in prison after he was caught making homemade wine.)

As a result, people have been known to employ creative methods when it comes to smuggling alcohol into the kingdom. 

Back in November, for instance, customs discovered 48,000 cans of Heineken cunningly disguised as Pepsi. 

Nice try, guys.
