First and foremost, he placed a disclaimer on the caption.
Bago ang lahat, for educational purposes lang ‘to – WALA AKONG SINISIRAAN. If anything, di nga ‘to kasalanan ni Mar, wala naman siguro siyang control sa mga ganito.

Then, he explained the trio technique to make it appear like there are more people.
At the end of the video, he noticed something or better yet, someone, unusual who is also in the crowd.
