    The technique works great.

    As one of the comments on youtube says, when possible (like this case) it is much better to push the hook back through the skin, cut off or mash down the barb, and then back the hook out. Yanking the hook out the way they did runs the risk of doing significant nerve/tendon damage. In any case, removing a large hook is best done by a doctor. Many marlin fishermen carry a pair of small bolt cutters so the lure and most of the hook can be detached from the unlucky (or stupid) angler/mate, in preparation for heading back to shore and a local hospital.
