That does look strange. Where was this video footage taken?

Weapon pod? They got some new missiles.

Nah...on second thought that does look like a drop tank.

Maybe he just returned from a "beer run"

In World War II beer was delivered to the troops in Normandy via the drop tanks from aircraft.

Tangmere, Sussex, July 1944: in front of a Spitfire IX of 332 (Norwegian) Squadron, a standard 45-gallon Typhoon/Hurricane ‘Torpedo’ jettison tank modified for use on the Spitfire (because of an expected shortage of 45-gallon shaped or slipper tanks) is filled with PA ale for flying over to Normandy while an RAF ‘erk’ writes a cheery message on the tank. Is the man filling the tank a brewery worker? Surely. Is the beer from Henty and Constable’s brewery in nearby Chichester? It seems very likely... <50% from [link to zythophile.co.uk]

F/A-18s usually have two or three drop tanks. In some cases, they can fit five for long distance hauls. Must have dropped one or two. Having one on a wing would cause the aircraft to be a little unbalanced, but perhaps not by much. If you were only going to fit one it would be placed directly underneath.

Could be a MXU-648 Travelpod. Like a detachable car trunk for jets.
