Personally I think that Ted Wong Pak Sau counter is ok, but there are some things I don't agree with done in the video. For instance, I don't know of any JKD guys that lead off with their left hand trying to do a pak sau (when they're in a right lead) so that just seems like poorly done trapping. The way that I understand it is that trapping is done off of a reference point.
To do a pak sau like the one demonstrated in the video would be like training to do trapping at a far distance and without making any initial contact first, you would be leaving yourself open if you did that. To me, that's training to do training incorrectly so you're already developing bad habits and using techniques that will leave you open to counters.
Also, if you did that pak sau counter, you're doing it with the assumption that your opponent is definitely going to pak sau you with his left hand before there is any contact of the wrists. If you leaded with a lead straight instead and he did that, then you could easily have time to defend against it.
The counter that I really like to the pak sau is the tan da, you're doing a simple counter and you're going off of contact.
But to answer your question Jason, yes I think counter trapping looks a lot more cool
