It just doesn't get any better then that!

I don't suppose his cords had soap bottles on them, by any chance?

OMG, that is hysterical!!
It looks like they might be using those chintzy 16-gauge orange extension cords you find at the hardware store, but at least they appear to be plugged into a spider off to the side.

From the looks of it, it would have been better to just bond it to all that metal around the generator. I am sure that metal might go back to building steel somewhere.

It was certainly not a serious thing but it is he kind of thing that could happen if they had some kind of "rule" in place about grounding generators.
