Of course they help. I mean think about it. How can the egyptians build pyramids at a time when they had primitive technology (compared to ours). Most of the other known civilizations didnt have pyramids then and they most dont have them today

It is a shame that there is only the animated footage, and perhaps it is good to remember that the original drilling of the door footage was almost certainly filmed in the replica shaft which Zahi hawass had built to " practice " on. Even though at first he denied that a dummy shaft had been built, he finally said that it had, but he misunderstood the question. The lack of drilling debris and the fact that the footage was not live as claimed, but was shown from footage supplied by him, for transmission on the show, so that if there were any holdups, the show could still fill the alloted time.
I am sure that there was no intention of letting anyone near seeing the real thing and perhaps that is why Rudolf Ganterbrink was kicked out of the project, the moment he reached and filmed the door. There were so many mistakes with the second set of films, the most curious was the fact that of the two doors in the queens chamber, there were numerous photographs which were different. It almost looked like we were seeing half a dozen different doors and shafts.
I don't think that the shafts were able to be opened or explored from the inside, and there was a big rumour at the time that Mr Hawass had been up the outside of the pyramid within the first few days after the Upuat mission, with a pickaxe and was diggng into a little cave like opening on one of the corners. He says that he will let no-one do anything invasive to the Pyramids, but he had at least one jack hammer and a generator doing work near the kings chamber. He knows about the hole in the wall by the side of the box in this chamber, as many must also know and old photographs of it show the opening and the platform. It has been sealed up and it is never mentioned, but it was said to link to another mirror image of the Grand Gallery and presumably of other features as well.
I always thought the pharaoh of the exodus story stood by while watching his army getting swept away, maybe i was wrong...

Whoever made the first vid in the OP does not know his history.
The Ark of the Covenant was not even made until after the Israelites left Egypt. Simple.
Rameses the Great was not the Pharaoh of the Exodus, and we know that because his mummy is in a museum. The Pharaoh of the Exodus drowned in the Red Sea, and did not get mummified. Simple.
