This is a video from nearby the beach in Poole, Dorset, UK, where a Mercedes is being crane lifted from its illegal parking spot by a tow truck. In the videographer’s own words while I go make sure the empty parking ticket envelope I put on my windshield is still there so the man doesn’t try to give me a real ticket:
I was completely unaware of the crane-lifting tow truck technique. They don’t use those around these parts. The only thing that could have made this video better is if the car’s owner had returned in time to get in the vehicle and start yelling so the tow truck operator could pretend he’d just picked up an angry little shithead and his car playing a giant arcade crane game.
