WATCH: These guys try to load a pick-up onto a boat using just two planks

We would love to have seen the planning stage of this harebrained scheme.

"Sure, we'll just give it a go."

Filmed somewhere in Northern Brazil, the video shows the madcap idea in action - achingly slowly, they attempt to load a car onto a ship using two slender wooden planks.

We don't know what's more amazing - that people thought this would be a good idea or that it actually worked. It's mostly a testament to the local lumber.

And rural ingenuity at its finest.
