Perhaps we ought to subtitle this post, "Fun with extension cords and electrical tape," or "What's a building code violation?"

The idiocy on display in this video is just staggering. Not one, but two openers have been installed in a garage that doesn't appear to be wired for electricity. We won't reveal any more spoilers, as there's nearly three minutes of drama to be had here, as the camera traces the wiring path back to its source.

While we're all for manginuity, there's a pretty clear line between channeling your inner MacGyver and creating a fire hazard. Please don't try this in your own garage.

Video after the jump.
