I saw reference to that on Facebook this morning, totally laughable. I'll give him a tire of mine to change the tube that will need more than one tire iron (I use 3) and you won't be able to put the tire back on with bare hands (unless you're the Hulk).

Sure. There are certain brands of tires that are more difficult to change than others (a handle of a butter knife works great!)
This was a video meant for noobs who want to learn how to fix a flat

I wouldn't let that guy work on my bike. First of all, his hair is not long enough. Second, he didn't even find out what caused the puncture and didn't bother checking that the tire reseated properly on the rim. What a noob (or should I say knob). Park Tools should sue him for using their name, except he's probably bankrupt.
