Door ding repair

I noticed I have a lovely new door ding so I did the little googling and found this repair method...

Hold a hair dryer to the ding for 20 to 30 seconds until it is hot, and spray with an upside-down can of compressed air, covering the area with liquid CO2. The dent should pop out on its own in less than a minute. Wipe the area clean with a soft, clean cloth.

Anybody know if this actually works? Does it harm the paint at all?

Sounds like some kind of voo-doo to me. Did you read it from the Nocranomicon?

here's the video that was mentioned before:

i've never done this before, but it looks like it has to be a pretty big dent, and the metal can't be creased either.
