    I worked part time in the auto hobby shop in the Air Force. One of the wrenches there did that. Was told next time he's outta there so quick his name would have to catch up with him. Pretty cool though.

    Had to do that at school couple weeks back, winter tires would get onto the bead, my auto teacher just says everyone get to the other side of the shop. Pssshhhhh then the torch lights...BAMM then it smelt like ass but the job was done, I secretly was peeking over a car (I have height advantage) pretty cool trick, scarey tho too

    I have done it before. Didnt go as "smoothly" as in the video, it just made a "FooF" sound, but it worked well. I learned how to do that on our Farm. :)
