I think I've figured it out... it's entirely fake. You see, the video cuts out just before it lands. The rocket hits the water, 3 employees get out a giant cardboard pop up Falcon stage 1, then the video feed comes back on.

As to the two landings on land, in tandem, and all the others, all us Reg readers know it's done with Marionettes and fireworks, just like in the good old days.
