Kids -- don't try this at home.

An accused bank robber says he was inspired by TV commercials for the new movie "Public Enemies."

Shawn Gullberg is accused of robbing two banks in Shelton, Conn.

According to police, Gullberg told them he got the idea for the bank jobs from a commercial for the new Johnny Depp film.

It's about the infamous 1930s bank robber John Dillinger.

Police say Gullberg wanted quick cash to buy drugs.

He's already on probation and has served time on theft and burglary charges.
