Quirky tip on how to propagate roses? Answered

Recently I found this little quirky tip on how to propagate roses/ bushes and I was wondering if it was true?

In the little tidbit, they tell you to use a cutting of a rose of course and then put a little cinnamon on one of the ends that you intend to grow roots. Then poke that end in to a potato. Then bury that part with the potato into the ground. After I guess eventually you get a new rose bush.

I was wondering can this actually work? Or is this just bait to get you to read more of their articles?
