Speed Splitting: Can You Dismantle a Log this Fast?

Do pride yourself on your timbercraft skills and your aptitude with an axe? Maybe you do...but can you split wood as fast as the guy in the video below?

It's a heck of a technique and doesn't require any more than a fairly short length of chain, a small, sturdy rubber belt, a fastener and a hefty-headed maul. Has anyone ever tried this or seen it done before? Thanks to Sports Illustrated, who turned us on to this clip.
