The idiot is trying to make the horse back up. When the horse backs up the idiot is supposed to stop swinging the rope. Eventually the horse will back up by jjust wagging your finger. But unfortunately neither the idiot or the horse know what the heck is going on. If done correctly the horse would be backing with just a wag of the finger by the end of the tape.
I didn't watch the entire tape, it looks like it just gets worse.
The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is today.
