I don't have an opinion on the technology, except that on a Prius it makes complete sense because there isn't a dedicated starter. I've always wondered how it affects engine longevity though considering static friction is much higher than dynamic friction.

Never did like shouty. I've said as much in other videos you've shown of him. Well, I like everyone, but I like his videos the least.

EDIT: I decided to watch the video anyhow, and he made the same basic point I did concerning hybrids, which might explain why I don't like his videos; I just don't learn much from them, and the delivery is obnoxious at that.
