The worst way to get your bakkie onto a ship

Posted by Tyson Jopson on 26 May 2015

Somewhere in the world (place unconfirmed) someone thought this was a good idea.

You’re thinking, ‘This is never going to work’. Everyone in the video is thinking, ‘This is never going to work’. But the driver goes ahead and does it anyway.

Two questions. The first is practical and the second is a little more, umm, philosophical.

1. How the heck did the driver get it turned 90 degrees to the dock in the first place?

2. Just because it worked, does that mean it was a good idea?

 

It reminds me of a video I posted a few years ago, ‘How not to cut down a tree in Africa‘ in which the result was a little, well, more expected.
