How to move a car aka how to get out if you are blocked in

At the end of the night, it turned out that the only two cars in the parking lot that were blocked in belonged to myself and my friend. Luckily, our car was blocked in only on the front. Theirs, on the other hand was entirely blocked in! We tried the hotel and found out the VW Touareg blocking us was not registered there, so my friends thought for a quick moment about taking a taxi back home; but we thought that for principle’s sake, we needed to move the blocking car. Here is what followed:
1: can we do this? yes!

2: should we tip it over? no, we’ll just leave it where it is:

Thank you to everyone who helped. I’m just sad I couldn’t see the guy’s face in the morning when he came out to his car; I think we should have tipped it, though.
