That guy is clearly looking for popularity, and he realized that a good way to get it is to speak bad of gear using the myth busting technique.
The wood of the guitars does not matter (video of the air-guitar), the topology of an amp does not matter... maybe in the next episode he will explain that between a Tubescream, a RAT, a fuzzface and a tonebender there's no difference. They all sound the same and whoever buys all these pedals, is a victim of self-suggestion and marketing.
Except that the real Mythbusters always did everything possible to guarantee the integrity of their date, despite what their pre-existing ideas might have been.

And yes, the guy is obviously pimping for popularity, which obliterates any possibility of impartiality.
