    A fascinating trick. Any suggestions as to how it is done? A hidden pump somewhere? It gets the prize for “The Deskarati Worst Visually Presented Clip of the Year” . Could he have taken the construction out of the filthy, untidy garage and had it photographed on the lawn, in the sunshine? The clip only lacked a black dog urinating over the assembled bits and pieces.
