Someone at Agence France Presse must have been pretty impressed by the sight, and AFP put together a video including an interview with one of the drivers putting his truck to good use, and it’s great.

Never mind Chelsea Clinton: watching the rescue effort in Houston has been great for America … and maybe it’s swelled a couple of hearts in France, too.
This is brilliant!
