Try this one.  It worked for me so I converted it to an mp4.

It's also very short and fast, so I added a replay that runs at 25% speed.

Thank you, Sarosh and Joe Meadmaker for your help.
In France, there were coal mines in the north, the center ( near St Etienne) and the south (near Grasse).
On the video, the landscape seems (for me) in the south near the Méditerranée.
So for me, the slinger would use the traditional méditerranée method. Balearic ? I can be wrong but it's just my idea.

There have been many migrant workers in the french mines. It is therefore possible that the slinger is Spanish. Refugee after the 1936 civil war or economic migrant.
