I agree, it would be frustrating as anything.

The time I helped a friend with a ridiculously hard to get off and on tire, it was a conti travel something or tour something, and with my friends rim, this combo was waaay harder than any of the various marathons that I have used and put on our families bikes--so just because its a "marathon" of whatever flavour, I find them to no diff than most other tires.

for me the takeaway from the vid is the technique of "pushing the tire inwards, thruoughout the wheel" to gain a few precious mm's at the end that makes it doable.
