I did a landing like that in a A340 at ORD.Flared a bit early and a degree or two too much.The plane touches gently and then continues to soar away along the runway.Ended up swallowing my pride and sat the plane down.Not a nice landing but a safe one.Rwy was 22R which is rather short for a A340,especially for a new captain on the type performing his 7th landing on type.
Saw no big problem with this Tunisair landing.

That was posted in a thread here a few days ago, I just can't remember where it is now. The approach looks fine, although it would help to see more of the plane to judge this, but after he flares and bounces the landing the nose stays high too high, and it comes very close to a tail strike as he touches back down.
Try a search, as there were some very good responses for why this might have happened on the first thread.
