Was this STAGED as part of movie or similar to get recognition?

Just wondering as sure seems like it with 1 arm done & not usable & still taking videos with the other & still hanging on for dear life.

@Andrew: I see a movie in this, but props to his perseverance, I think I would have waited until the cold put me away.

I must be slipping in the 'media literacy' department
it didn't occur to me what andrew suggested possible

remember that camera that fell from a plane and ended up
on a pig farm
discovered with footage intact?

at the time I figured a 'guerilla' marketing stunt.
