I'd say he was close to it. Looked like he landed on his bottom bracket.

I saw the thread for that video awhile ago, and apparently his bike was fine and he was just a bit shook up after the crash. Crazy case-age.

Props to him for trying. It certainly beats being a no-talent fool sitting on the internet criticizing.

Brutal!

He really didnt miss it by much either time. Only half a bike length. I wonder if he'll try it again?
