Yet utube video shows just that! Explain.
If you switch off to disconnect jump leads, there is a pretty good chance the dud vehicle will not restart as it will not have gained enough charge to restart yet.

Both vehicles should also switch off unnecessary electrical loads, heated screens, sidelights only etc during the process,and the dud vehicle should maintain minimum necessary electrical load until it is certain there is enough charge stored to enable restarting
