Impressive, but obviously not skilled enough to pull off the elusive double foot belay.

Looks more to me like he's running both ropes side by side through the same belay tube... though my eyes may be deceiving me

Come one man, belaying is serious business that requires concentration, it's no place for a glass of scotch. There's simply too many distractions that could lead to spilling some perfectly good single malt. Best to risk it with beer.
