Correct way to drive a screw. Can't stop laughing. Not sure why.

One of Home Depot's training videos for millennials perhaps?

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.
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".
