if i pause in the same spot on 10/12/2012 you can clearly see that i'm holding my upper back straight, thus lengthening the distance from hips to scapulae and making it nearly impossible to keep a good position, by the time my hips rise to the point where I've got some leverage, I've been thrown forward and the pull is a mess. I will be testing this theory on Thursday or as soon as I can get to the gym.
Good catch.
