Heh, yea you COULD of extruded them.. just you would have to put on.. "keep faces together".. which is a simple option.
HOTBOX > Polygons>tool options>Keep faces together
Now when you extrude, all those faces should stay together
. But yea, i took that tutorial and its not extrude... its just to pull them... if it was to extrude, this would work as well, i think.
