Well, that was fatuous. I watched for a minute or so, because changing a tire while wearing a headscarf might have lead to an Isadora Duncan moment. It didn't.
Warning. Mute the sound.

Sure, that's easy if the lug nuts are only on there finger tight.  Lets seem them do that when the tire place put the wheel on with an impact wrench and all they have to break it loose is the little shorty bar that comes with the car.  Also, I want to see the inside the car footage of the guy fishing the spare out of the trunk from the back seat , from underneath the all the crap stored in the trunk.  For all I know, he just put the same tire back on.  Also, he didn't tighten the lug nuts when he was done, which is probably a good idea if you are doing crazy stunt driving.

It was the same tire.
He only put the lugnuts on finger tight. It'll fall off within 5 miles.
But he gets points for doing it with a tablecloth on his head.

The transmision sends power only to one side of the car? Wouldn't at least one of the wheels that was up in the air still spin?

EGGactly... taking off a tire and putting the same tire back on is NOT changing a tire... total and complete fail.

/only continued to watch in hopes it would drop down while tire was off and SCRAAAAAAAAAAAPE lol

It's a front wheel drive car.  I guess they could have removed the CV joint from the left front and locked its half axle somehow, so only the right front is driven.

Double warning: this video starts louder than the Russian meteorite event.

Can I ask a question ?
What's the deal with fake videos and that picture from star trek where a humanoid alien is holding up a pen and (I'm presuming) yelling fake.

that one (sort of) What does it have to do with a fake something>

there is nothing fake about this... it's a classic gimmick from all those old Barn storming car stunt shows
usually done a oval small track.

if you were able to google up an image, then you could have sourced it to it's origins...

namely its from Deep Space 9, that alien dude is a Romulan Ambassador..

that, and, in a regular rear differential vehicle, the power is sent to the wheel that needs it the most.so... like say.. when a vehicle is making a turn, it allows the wheel on the out side of the turn to spin faster than the one on the inside of the turn so the wheel doesn't hop in the arc, so yes, power is usually favored to one wheel or the other. and it's possible for one wheel to stop while the other is taking power, it's even possible for the other wheel to start spinning in the opposite direction. A proper Fark Mechanic could give a better explanation of this

but in this case, dude is changing the rear wheel on a front wheel drive vehicle. the rear wheels are not attached to each other nor they are driven..

You should take note of that, for it is exactly how a differential doesn't work.

So, all the allusions to "it's a fake" refer back to "a convincing holographic record of a Dominion meeting between  and discussing plans involving a Romulan attack, "? DoI understand it now?

\to be honest I've only ever watched the new JJ abrams star trek movie. I wouldn't have even able to tell you which series that ep was in.
\\my GIS was "star trek alien fake"
