Well, I can't record a video, and I also wouldn't meet the criteria that he listed in his video anyway, as I opened my Switch a long time ago. However, my console is on 1.0.0, has never been connected to the internet, and I know for a fact that it is on there, as I have launched it several times, including just a few minutes ago. According to this page
, it will not launch on anything above 1.0.0, even if it has never been connected to the internet, as it causes an error. According to that page, you will also never be able to launch it on any firmware from 2.0.0 to 3.0.2 without connecting it to the internet at least once, even if you set the system date to July 11. If he tried it on a new Switch from around October, as that video says, I would say that chances are the firmware was higher than 1.0.0 at that point. I also know that some people have accessed it on 2.0.0 to 3.0.0 with Pegaswitch, but I'm not too familiar with those methods. There are some threads about it on this board though...

Apparently it IS possible to trick nes golf into loading on your switch
Basically, from my understanding, to get it to launch without hacks, and without it actually being July 11, your Switch console must meet the following criteria...
- Console firmware must be at 1.0.0
- The console must never have been connected to the internet.
- System time must be set to July 11.
If it has been connected to the internet once, you will have to wait until it is actually July 11, even if you are on 1.0.0. Also, obviously this only applies to firmwares 1.0.0 to 3.0.2.
To launch it with hacks, your firmware must be on 3.0.0 or lower, and you must set the network time to July 11.
As for the gestures, and the amount of attempts it took @fire3element
to successfully pull it off in that video, I have to say that it personally took me many attempts to successfully launch it as well. However, once I got it for the first time, I have since been able to launch it very consistently.
