A seven-year-old video has surfaced online purporting to show how to unlock a car using just a shoelace.

The clip, thought to have been filmed in Russia, shows a man approach a mk1 Renault Clio, with the keys clearly in hand, and check that it is locked, before a friend brings out a piece of string and ties a loop in it.
