i was watching this early on, and on the 5th minute is says that going into silent mode gives u 50% more sharp shots

The Canon Silent Shooting mode I am aware of is using Live View and is accessed though the menu. Since in Live View the mirror is up and the shutter open, the shot can be initiated electronically, avoiding both mirror slap and mechanical shutter vibrations.

See post #8 in this thread for a description of Silent Shooting mode 1 or 2

Since the 5D does not have Live View, this feature is not available. The 1DsIII and 1DmkIV have a silent drive mode, which was referred to in the video clip.

Is it supposed to be sharper because it's eliminating mirror slap?

well its just like mirror lockup function so yes shoots will be sharper on a tripod with a cable release shooting at low shutter speeds...
