OK,
My video is not perfect.

Tiptoes: I was trying to keep my right leg out of the way to show my left leg on the clutch pedal.
Foot on clutch: I have no excuse. but I will say that i do not put pressure on the pedal.
Cruise: I like the pedal lock, and I have no problem setting it for any speed (usually full throttle) and if I hav eto make a quick stop I just push in the clutch and hit the brake. The engine can stay at high idle until I can release the lock.

Zimtok I thought the video was awesome! But I did learn many, many years ago that by merely "resting" your foot on the pedal not intentionally applying pressure. That even though you aren't meaning/intending too, but you are actually applying a very slight pressure which is sometimes just enough to make the throw out bearing ride the fingers of the pressure plate which causes premature throw out bearing failure!
