A Brazilian prisoner who allegedly dressed as his teenage daughter and attempted to waltz out of a Rio de Janeiro penitentiary was foiled on Saturday, authorities state.

We can’t possibly see why.

Christ.

ABC reports convicted gang leader Clauvino “Shorty” da Silva was visited by his 19-year-old daughter at Gericino prison over the weekend, and allegedly tried to impersonate her in order to walk out the front door.

According to authorities, da Silva donned a pink t-shirt, tight jeans, a long-haired wig, and an absolutely demonic latex face mask during his attempted caper.

The plan apparently involved leaving her behind bars. Bum deal, tbh.

Authorities state da Silva’s jaunt only ended after guards noticed him acting in a suspicious manner, which makes sense given the circumstances.

Video taken after his apprehension shows a chastened da Silva removing the mask in true Scooby-Doo style. If it wasn’t for you meddling kids…

He was reportedly transferred to a maximum security facility and will face disciplinary action for his audacious escape attempt. Authorities are also investigating if the daughter played a role in facilitating the attempted jailbreak.
