Ranger Roll to Firemans Carry - Advice?

Would be interested on thoughts from 18D and others on the following...

A member of our "skills session" group at our gym found this video on ******* showing how to solo transition an unconscious casualty quickly into a fireman’s carry.

Got to admit it looks cool, but I imagine it has little to any practical application outside an immediate combat situation, if that.

The guy teaching it is Wil Willis a former Ranger and PJ.
But it still might be more for show.

But I'd be interested on thoughts, stories, etc from 18D and others.
Is it even actually used / taught?
Maybe it used to be?
It'd be great to have some background / stories on it if we do add it to our skills curriculum at the gym.

Watch the rest of the video for some funny as SEAL shit.
