Yes, it's great at many things. And the player's skills and tastes are of course crucial. But, to me, this clip, like Knopfler's best moments (especially the gloriously long outro of "Tunnel of Love"), really show what a Strat's great qualities are. What's built into it. Those sproingy, sweet, bell-like chimes and ghost whispers. I love almost all kinds of and tones from guitars. But when only a Strat's pure Strattiness will do, this is it. Mesmerizing stuff. This gent is a wizard, generally. His YouTube clips are well worth getting hooked on.
