Default Reverse Bleeders for Brakes

Has anyone ever heard of Reverse Bleeders?

I came across this post on another forum:

MAKE SURE YOUR SYSTEM IS EMPTY OF FLUID. crack your bleeder screw crack and watch the master cylinder closely when the fluid gets there it will fill up fast. but you will not have air in your system
That's interesting. I've never heard of such, and I thought he was about to describe how to make a pipe bomb.

I found out that someone makes stuff like this, too.

Here's a YouTube by Speedway showing about it. Reverse Bleeding with their tool starts at about 2:09 into the video.

Has anyone ever done this before?
