It looks like crystline cellulose rather than glass. If you look closely at the video that includes a balloon as well, you can see a second film layer of some type is present. It could be an extremely thin film coating of some type on Saran Wrap that is pulled tight and coated through an evaporative process making a very fragile "glass-like" surface. The plastic wrap would account for the lack of shattering.

I win lots of bar bets that way.
