Thank you both for your enlightening comments. :-)
My Aikido BS Detector is not well calibrated yet.
I haven't run into the Aikido version of being sent to the aircraft maintenance hanger to ask for a gallon of Prop Wash and 50' of Flight Line, but I'm sure when I do, I'll fall for it hook, line, and sinker. So I appreciate both your points of view on whether this video is serious or not. (Clearly it was playful, I guess I mean "the real thing.")
