What you didn't see is the video of him fighting to get the bead seated. I change my own with spoons, not hard BUT I have 3 pieces of wood cut about 1/2 wider than my rim which I put across the bead inside the tire and put it in the sun while I work on the old tire. I put the new tire on, bead is tight against the rim and takes air...no problem.
