Conflict resolution is a tricky thing, no matter where you live. Sometimes, if you're embroiled in some kind of tractor vs. car accident in rural France, the only thing to do is reach for an elegant weapon for a more civilized age.
If the democratization of technology has given us anything, it's given us the power to turn found footage into something wholly different and, occasionally, something entirely inspired. To wit: this camcorder footage, nabbed from a balcony somewhere in the middle-of-scenic-nowhere France, of an elderly gentleman who escalates a screaming match into some kind of stick fight.
Then, through the magic of cheap image-manipulation software, it becomes an epic battle for the right of way starring one codger who clearly packs more punch than anyone could've expected.
The best part is when, his trusty weapon snatched by the ruffian, the old fella climbs into his tractor for his backup piece. Didn't see that one coming, eh, Henri?
