    HA HA!! Reminds me, an employee of our family timber yard in Calif in the 60's, did building work as a sideline. He reckoned that the best way to drive a screw (typically a 1" X #8/10 door hinge screw) was to drive a pilot hole with a 16d nail, then drive the screw with a hammer leaving a couple of threads out and screw the last couple of turns!

    Perhaps we are missing something. Maybe the drill is turning but as it is a time lapse type film the drill actually looks like it is stationary, or maybe he is really reaming a hole in a very soft piece of pine and did not show the screw being pulled out again, or maybe this is a man with twelve trades and thirteen mistakes. (An Afrikaans saying meaning a jack of all trades....) I would like to see this done in a really hard piece of wood.

    Agreed, no way to tell. See Poe's Law. At first I thought it was just cut from a terrible DIY video, but the final scene was just too perfect, so I'm leaning parody.

    Reminds me of something I was told many years ago. "Hammer them in, the slots are for taking them out."

    Reminds me of a story from my youth. I was building some wood boxes and was screwing them together. Since I had to drive them by hand, I was starting them by tapping them in about a half inch with a hammer, then driving them in. My dad walks over and watches as I start a screw and says "you know, they go in easier with a screwdriver".
