I'm torn. I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy watching the video for the pure spectacle of it, but it's beyond reckless to endanger other road users to that degree. There is simply no way to predict what other road users will be doing fast enough to respond at those speeds.
Even if someone checks their mirrors before manoeuvring, or does a side glance on entry, they may well not see/notice just how insanely fast the car and bike would be upon them. It's not like the autobahn where drivers at least expect to be dealing with vehicles running at vmax.
This video could so easily have gone the other way and ended up showing the last few moments of someone's life.
