Looks like it. Weird how this video seems to pop up about once a year, just like clockwork. Anyway, I'm closing this thread, and I went through and closed all of the other threads except one, so we can keep this topic in one place:

And please note my response in that old thread:

If you want to simulate what he's doing in GURPS, roll vs. the lower of Bow Art or Fast-Draw (Arrow), with all applicable penalties for both, but bonuses for TDM and appropriate gear (e.g., a low-draw bow and custom quiver). Success fires one arrow in the general direction of a target, plus one additional arrow for every two full points of success, in a single second.
