Wow, that was... dangerous. In 20 years cooking for a living, I have never, ever seen someone try that way. And using a serrated knife in that way is not the safest or most efficient way. The noise that the knife was making hitting the cutting board is a good sign he was working to hard to chop that onion.
The only real way I have ever had success chopping onions tear free is using a very sharp knife. I've never heard that it is just the root of the onion that causes tears. It's the gas released from cutting it, which is from the damaged cells found throughout the whole vegetable.
Next time I chop onions, I'll try this method but I am skeptical at best that it works.
Here is a tip for cutting onions without crying.
