Funny stuff.
Those sideways facing rectangular headlamps could work perfect as long as the vehicle was laying on it's side.

Nauru may be the biggest dump and failure of a nation on Earth. Centuries ago, they once had a beautiful island but they hollowed nearly all of it out for phosphate mining. The government was corrupt and embezzled much of the money, only to squander it in a multitude of awful investments around the world. There are many major cities with Nauruan-owned buildings that are vacant and falling apart. The people--as apparent in the video--received little of the largess and now live as welfare dependents and subsistence agrarians.

Interesting reading about this island nation. Their obesity epidemic and the resulting health consequences are the highest in the world. Without any land for agriculture and healthy, island grown food production, they are dependent on processed goods imported from afar. Endless occupations and failed government(s) have resulted in this attrocity of modern times.
