Why was this eliminated from the US version?
I always found this much more useful than the bigger truck. The bigger truck is an example of not being very smart, but does not lead very easily to a discussion about self-reliance.
This actually shows looking for options, not blaming others, realizing it is your problem (being self reliant) and taking initiative to solving your own problem (being self-reliant).
Many who are not self-reliant need to realize that they are the problem not their circumstance or someone else and this video really leads to that discussion.
For a logical thinker the other bigger truck video is humorous but so simple that you lose focus very quickly and don't focus on the problem solving or self-reliance. The answer is so obvious that it doesn't provoke thought or introspection in my opinion.
Since returning home from the Phillippines where we were self-reliance missionaries, we have used Principle 7 and this video as the basis for FHE with our children and grandchildren with some very spiritual and enlightening experiences that I know we would not have gotten with the bigger truck.
