The video camera aspect blows a lot of the perceived magic. Notice you don't see the mount or dismount, no lengthy shots without cuts, etc.

But they left enough in so you can see how the fake arm is mounted on top of the bus.

I didn't see that, I saw they didn't let you see that. There was never a continuous shot from real to fake arm, it was clear on the dismount that he was on a lift of some kind. It's in the parts cut out where the only difficult 'magic' needed doing. That's why I think videoed magic like this is usually not very interesting.
