I don't buy it, I can't see how that will even generate enough power to push the locking pins up in the right sequence AND to turn it (unless that's not how that lock works)

The only way that is possible is if the car is Air Tight. I think the guy out of shot had the spare remote. The only way a Tennis Ball could help you get into your car is if you used it smash your window. (Recommended)
