Conventional wisdom dictates that if you set out to make a MacGyver video to post on YouTube, you must have a roll of duct tape. Or a pack of chewing gum. At the very least, a pocket knife.

We're not sure if these Russian guys had any of the aforementioned items – heck, we're not even sure if they're Russian – but they did have an E34 BMW 5 Series.

Follow the jump to watch the brief video clip.

The video meant to be presented here is no longer available. Sorry for the inconvenience.
