Verde's standing reverse seoi

Although the reverse seoi is largely done as a drop, Italy's Elio Verde does his as a standing technique. It should be noted that there are not many European players who have adopted this technique (which has widely been adopted in South Korea and Japan). Verde is one of the few who has chosen to specialize in it. In the clip below, you see him doing a standing version of the technique.

Verde starts with a right hand grip on his partner's lapel.
From this view, it looks like he's doing a morote-seoi-nage.
He actually has a two-on-one grip on his partner's lapel.
After rotating counter-clockwise, he just pulls down hard.
