In the video, the pax jump through the emergency exits, then hug/potter around the wing area.

In a real emergency situation, I'd be out of there asap and getting as far away as I can in case the plane exploded or caught alight from fuel spillage.

Anything else people can see that should have been done differently?

Well played.

That was an excellent landing though. Well done to the pilot.

Cheers,

At least with your landings you manage to keep the "propeller" from making contact with the ground ;) .
