What he is presenting is not "live" light propagating though the bottle as I first thought; this technique is built up using successive passes of still images on different occasions. For this reason, mind-blowing though it is, it is only possible to record repeatable events (at the moment).

Also interesting is the fact that the only reason you can see the photons from this angle is that water is scattering them. More abstractly, the only photons you can ever see are the ones that are on a collision-course with your retina, they can never be used from the 'side' directly.
