How to thread a difficult needle.

I saw this on another site I visit and thought it may help anyone like me who are starting to struggle threading fine needles with small holes.  I haven't tried it yet so can't say if it works or not  :o

I saw that this morning (on Ravelry) and it didn't work for me.  I tried with Guetermann SewAll and with Guetermann cotton 50/3 and a sharps size 9 needle.  I also tried with a much bigger needle, as per the video, and it still didn't work.
