Can You Really Combine a Compound Bow and a Twelve-Gauge Shotgun?

This video purportedly shows someone demonstrating what has to be one of the craziest weapon mashups we've ever encountered: a compound bow crossed with a twelve-gauge shotgun.

There's been some well-deserved skepticism as to whether or not the recoil is authentic, but more importantly, whether or not the bow's strings can be used to successfully impact the shotgun's firing pin. There's also the question of why someone would choose to completely negate the stealthy silent nature of hunting with a crossbow, and why this creation didn't come from the twisted mind of our favorite slingshot builder, Joerg Sprave.

What a stupid, pointless waste of time and resources. So he's taken two useful items and mashed them together to produce a bow that will no longer shoot arrows and at the same time a shotgun that is practically impossible to use. What a dickhead.
