If you properly place the blank on the rail you IMO and meny others you won't have a problem. From the reel up to foot up and to the butt is fine, foot up from the reel to the tip is not a good idea as you can snap the rod. I didn't notice where he placed the rod in the video. I can say I do know the person in video and he dose know his S**t. Was it a good idea to place the rod tip on the rail, no.
I'll leave it as that. This video was more on location and not what did right or did wrong in video.
