If you had to erect a vertical antenna during an emergency, could you do it in 3 minutes or less?

In this video, Peter Parker (VK3YE) shows us how to unpack, erect, and use a portable HF vertical antenna in less than 3 minutes.  All you need are a telescoping fiberglass pole, a length of wire for the band of interest, a L-match antenna "tuner", and a simple counterpoise wire.  Such an antenna can be made in just a few hours and will provide contacts during portable or emergency situations.
