Handbells are "weird instruments"?  Jeez go to any public music performance in December and you're bound to hear them

I thought that was a strange classification too - but I assumed they meant the plastic tubs and bowls full of pebbles.

Sheet metal, jet turbines, dried leaves, broken glass, raw meat, etc... You name it, they'll make music with it.

A very normal and not at all nightmarish musical instrument.

After watching this a couple of times I STILL cannot figure out what is making the basso tone. It's not one of the bells. In fact, it sounds pretty much like a bass guitar that we can't see. Anyone else notice and, if so, do you hear what I'm hearing and can you explain it?

In the context of Lil Nas song covers?  Yeah, I'd say they are in that case usage.  Plus the random crap they're using to weave in percussion

/and yeah - that was an impressive performance right there

It's hard to believe that they got it sounding that perfectly balanced and executed in a live situation.
It's hard to get bells to chime exactly in time by just swinging them.

I'm going to guess that this was studio recorded and then lip-synched to make the video.

The resonant bass tone is probably coming from the large bells - I think they have the ability to resonate like that, but again,
studio enhancement is also probably at play to make it sound more contemporary and groovy.

once on SNL I saw Beck and his band play a syncopated rhythm song as they stood around a dining table that was set with glasses, utensils et cetera. there were no instruments, the song was played with hands and the place settings. it was clever and entertaining.
