Pneumatic cannon no pumping? Answered

I wanted to build a soda shooting fridge canon like this

but I don't understand how the cannon in question works. All pneumatic cannons I have dealt with have required pumping, but this one appears not to require pumping. How does it work?

You could make a pnuematic cannon that fires about four rockets (or whatever your shooting) but only filling it once.

It would probably have a mini air compressor

I'm just guessing but a gas solenoid valve. I have seen them on several types of compressed air / gas cannons.

I seriously hate to be rude, BUT if you can't figure the different compressed gasses..... I'm not going to tell you how to hurt yourself. :(

I am not going to hurt myself, I just want to know how he is propelling a can without pumping it with compressed air.
