So basically you get video of the car driving itself while most of the video is of them talking about random subjects instead of focusing on what the car is doing. There are no pedestrian crossings and at 5:10 you got the car basically coming to a stop for no reason(which is what these cars are known to do https://www.google.com/search?q=waymo+cars+stopping+for+no+reason ), then hitting the gas and then making an illegal right hand turn because it doesn't get over "as close as practical" to the curb to ensure that bicycles don't get in between and get hit. It's basically following the white line instead of getting next to the curb to make a legal right hand turn.

During this ride, instead of allowing the video to speak for itself, you hear the reporter and the waymo ceo just talking and talking instead of allowing the video to be all we see. You see no left hand turns and this car is essentially going around the block. It makes no stops to pick anyone up, goes through no parking lots.

At 6:01 it makes another illegal right hand turn, turning, once again, from the middle of the lane instead of getting over "as close as practical" to the curb as it's supposed to do. At this point there are 0 pedestrians on the road to test if this vehicle stops for them like it's supposed to do.

At this point it's just another promotional video that shows nothing that a normal human driver would need to worry about.

So basically 6 minutes of driving right around the block with no obstacles to worry about.

Good job, Waymo.
