It must be photoshopped as it doesn't have a Florida plate.

I understand the point of everything except the strap. What is that doing?

Safety strap in case the hitch thing doesn't work out. Safety 1st!

I've used a jack (bumper jack) to jumpstart a truck before...but that is some creativity right there. I'm impressed.

When I was in HS. 2 old trucks, 70's model fords, one dead. Of course the dead one was the automatic. Put the bumpers together and laid the bumper jack across the hot posts. Laid a floor mat across the radiator supports to keep from jacking anything up. Bumper jack was out of my 68 Bonneville.

Wasn't that long ago. I'm 38. Despite the age of the vehicles involved, it was somewhere around 1999 or 2000.
