You could search google for "ground wrist strap", but the easiest way I know of to protect against static damage is to touch a grounded metal surface frequently while working. If you have a computer nearby, touching a metal part of the case will work..

Its called a "Esd strap"

The video you speak of is probably of someone who got sick of wearing the ground on his wrist, which tends to knock things over with the wire. I extended the ground lead from the rear of my soldering station, and just slip the wire with a metal contact in the side of my sock. The lead can touch anywhere on your body, so long as the other end is attached to a good ground source.
