I just watched this video. All I can say of Mr. Righetti is... wow. He is really talented!

One thing that I find bizarre (besides his fancy pair of socks :P ) is that he uses his hindfoot to hit the pedalboard notes in addition to the forefoot (I thought you always used the tip of the foot, as with piano)

Thanks for the share David!

No, that is very common, at least in romantic repertoire. You can't well play scales (especially chromatic ones) with toes only.
In Baroque repertoire it is common to play with toes only, though there are some situations where toe-heel will be applied.

Interesting. The performance did seem quite chromatic, and Liszt is decidedly a romantic composer.
