Part of my problem is that I don't speak the language and can't follow it. An example of my problem is this: At 0:36 the video seems to be claiming that says $\displaystyle 656 \times 838 \times 972$ is somehow 6? My guess is that we are looking to find the last digit in the multiplication? Dan

...and why d'hell is "very big" scary? You really end up multiplying a few digits. Plus no multiplication required if one or more of those last digits is 0 or 5.

It states that if $a$ is not divisible by $2$ or $5$, then the last digit of $a^4 = 1$. Thus for example, to compute $$333^{4323133}$$ we write $4323133 = 4*1080783 + 1$ Hence in mod 10 $$333^{4323133} = (333^4)^{1080783}333 = 333 = 3.$$ Isn't this a lot easier????? Now if $a$ is divisible by $5$, then the last digit of $a$ is always $5$ or $0$, and it is easy to see which. If $a$ is divisible by $2$, then use that the last digit of $2^5 = 2$.
