I was looking at this video and in particular the spey cast at 2 minutes 20 seconds in, which caught my attention and I thought I would ask all the expert casters on the forum if you've seen this cast before. It looks very economical and in my opinion very well executed by the angler in the video. Any thoughts?

Interesting. No.

Appears to be either a double spey where rather than using his rod to drag the line upstream to place his anchor he has used a snap instead, or a Snap T where the anchor is kept to the downstream shoulder. But the main point is it works.

Haven't seen this before, but looks very effective. Looks like he 'snaps' over the top of the trailing body (rather than under per the usual snap T), thereby keeping the anchor downstream. Definitely going to give this a go!

That's what I thought too. A shortened version of a double spey without pauses.
Also alot less splashy, im not sure of its advantage over a snake roll but im going to give it a try so see how it works.

If you are right handed on a right bank and have an upstream wind which is too strong for a snake roll - this is your last option before you have to switch hands. :)
