Well, the diagram seemed pretty standard to me, but I've been reading crochet diagrams for several years now, so . . .
Perhaps Mikey didn't cover the puff stitch in his video; it's not all that common of a stitch. At any rate, the diagram for the puff stitch and the crocheted stitch in the image do seem to match (plus, I double checked it in The Crochet Stitch Bible,
which uses diagrams).
If you find I misinterpreted something, please let us know! Thanks.
