How do I get here?

Maybe you know this film and this severe stretch (5:40-)
www.youtube.com . . .

My question is, how do I get in the starting position? I can do that on the floor. But how to get on chairs? I can put one foot on a chair, but how to get the other foot on the chair while my hips are still in the air? Should I be able to make a handstand first? :)

I would probably do a donkey kick up into it, starting in a balled up squat with hands on the floor, then straightening the legs and pointed the toes putting all weight into the hands, then opening the legs into a straddle. Once they're both up, you can tweak positioning. It's not a full hand stand, but it puts weight in your hands long enough to open your legs into the right position.
