(WDAY TV) - Do you remember this story from last week? A man dressed in a Gumby costume who tried to rob a convenience story in California?

The man underneath the claymation character's costume and his accomplice have turned themselves in. Surveillance video shows the clumsy, would-be robber trying to get cash from the clerk, but he struggled to keep the green suit on.

After giving up and walking out, the store clerk said he thought the whole thing was a prank.
