The Famous Melbourne "Hook Turn"
My girl (who is from out of town) and I were goofing around in the car and I seized upon the opportunity to explain to her this unusual feature of Melbourne's traffic. Being a tourist, she always has a camera handy, and thus this video was born.
(After claiming that this is unique to Melbourne, I was subsequently corrected by my homeboy Steve Cheah, who pointed me to a Wikipedia entry on the hook turn - apparently it exists in a number of cities all over the world. So maybe it's not that unique. Shows how much I know.)
