We are merely little creatures on the Earth. To think our existence, even short term, is permanent is silly. But seriously, I'd of bailed from that block of apartments straight away...

He wasn't letting the air outta his tires, he was locking in the front hubs for 4-wheel drive!!! He musta really liked his truck to risk his life like that!!

I'm in Western Australia and been lucky to avoid all these problems mother nature has thrown at us, floods, then a couple weeks later a huge cyclone, fires north and south around where we live costing many their homes, now an earthquake in New Zealand.

ps:Whoever titled this vid should really go over and correct the spelling of Australia.

I live in Toowoomba, its on top of a mountain and we get flooded.
Never in my life would I expect a flood here.

I can't believe people would think that letting the air out of the tires will cause a vehicle to not float...

#19 he did it so he could drive away, the same thing you do when crossing a river. This one was tricky.

I think it is more likely he is locking his front hubs so the 4wd will work properly. Letting the air out only helps when you are on a soft surface such as sand where you want less ground pressure per square inch to keep from sinking in. On a hard surface such as pavement one wants more ground pressure so increasing the air pressure would be more helpful.
