Pretty cool video... I wonder if there's ever any risk of creating an artificial tsunami by doing something like this? Do they pick a really deep part of the ocean?

It's a shock test. It gives the ship a jolt to check out how well things are mounted, wires connected, etc., etc. I was on the Forrestal for one in 1985. No big deal.
