I guess the point here is to show that the steering system of a giant Volvo truck is super-responsive. It seems to me that could have been achieved by letting somebody obviously frail give it a go. But why would you do that when you can take apart a large fan, put a hamster in it, and motivate him with a carrot? Because that's totally something a non-crazy person would do. Clearly Muppet Chefs aren't the only Swedish folks who dream up strange concoctions.
