This is nuts - changing tires while driving

Watching this, one would assume that alcohol was involved, but these gentlemen appear to be in Saudi Arabia so perhaps their only inebriant is the "clear ether of youth itself"*:

*My favorite opening paragraph ever, from The Atlantic in an article entitled The Dark Power of FraternitiesI haven't read the whole article, but this is a world class opening paragraph: 
One warm spring night in 2011, a young man named Travis Hughes stood on the back deck of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity house at Marshall University, in West Virginia, and was struck by what seemed to him—under the influence of powerful inebriants, not least among them the clear ether of youth itself—to be an excellent idea: he would shove a bottle rocket up his ass and blast it into the sweet night air. And perhaps it was an excellent idea. What was not an excellent idea, however, was to misjudge the relative tightness of a 20-year-old sphincter and the propulsive reliability of a 20-cent bottle rocket. What followed ignition was not the bright report of a successful blastoff, but the muffled thud of fire in the hole.

  1. I'd be interested to see them rotate the tires as well. THAT would be something.
