No, the reversed message is not deliberate. Like anyone else under stress, the man speaking in the video is providing an unconscious commentary on himself and his situation. It is backwards because it comes from the right brain hemisphere, rather than the left which controls conscious speach. Reversals are in the language that the speaker normally "thinks in". There are exceptions, but they are extremely rare.
Any reverse speech practitioner, upon listening to a few minutes of these reversals, would tell you that the fact that this man is a native english speaker is an absolute certainty.
There is no way to fake reverse speech. It is possbile to mechanically add sound to a recording that would make sense when played backward, but it would also be audible when played forward, and you would notice the strangeness right away. Only the human brain has the ability to blend backwards and forwards speech together in a way that is otherwise undetectable.
