Driveshaft balance/ runout sensitivity?

This guy from Oklahoma ran over a mattress and decided to keep going. The
ensuing jumble finally whipped around enough to put a tear in the gas tank,
the subsequent lack of fuel is what finally brought this vehicle to its
knees.

It had still managed to drive 30 more miles decently with a 60lb tangle
wrapped around the driveshaft.

This genius complained that the vehicle had a "shimmy" when driving it high
speeds.

This is what the dealership found..............
