VW Touareg V10 TDI Tows a 747

I remember a while ago I saw some muscle-man towing a 747, but that was simply just odd, and I swear he was very close to self combustion. Nonetheless, it still always amazes me when I see anything towing a 747. Perhaps its simply due to the fact that I don't understand how much force is required to a move 747. Sure its big and weighs 155 tons, but its on wheels... Anyway, VW wanted to prove a point. Diesel has power.

Nice photo ha? Reports say that the poor plane didn't put up much of a fight, and the Touareg towed the massive jumbo jet 150 meters at 8 km/hr before coming to a stop using its own standard brakes - wonder if it needed new brake pads and discs after this little stunt?
