Can Confetti Be Used By Perps To Overload Low End Cameras?

A customer mentioned to me today use of confetti or glitter to overload the motion detection capabilities of low end cameras or dvr systems, causing them to lock up.

Used by perps as a form of suppression or disabling a camera system.

A few searches didn't yield anything.

Has anyone observed this in the wild?

Perhaps IPVM could add this to camera tests, handful of glitter past the lens?

Surely more than x% motion just becomes continuous record.

Does the high intensity motion overload just the ccd or front end?
