The video is about joining wires together properly, not jump starting your car...

A tip, DON'T use masking tape in place of electrical tape. One car I bought many years ago had just that under the dash on wiring repairs.

Everybody knows masking tape goes on wires so you can write notes on it to get the wire back in the right place.
