Calgary police want to identify two men captured on surveillance video in what could be called a Hollywood-inspired heist attempt.

Video released by Calgary police shows two men tethering an ATM to their vehicle and attempting to yank it out of a Boston Pizza lobby by driving away.

The video shows one man enter the establishment at 2836 Memorial Drive S.E. around 11:20 p.m. Tuesday.

He loops a yellow strap around the ATM in the restaurant as a second man in the background assists.

The culprits then exit the lobby, get in their vehicle and start to pull away.

In the next seconds of the video, the yellow strap pulls taught, flinging the door to the restaurant wide open as a piece of unidentified debris flies across the screen, but the ATM barely budges.

The vehicle's exterior lights flash on, and the video comes to an end.
