Playing Doom with a Rotary Phone

It's a popular challenge among computer programmers and tinkerers to find ways to play the 1993 first-person shooter game Doom on decidedly non-standard video game equipment. Past participants have tried rats, potatoes, a smart refrigerator, and a pregnancy test as platforms, power supplies, or controllers for the game. Now a new player has entered the game.

This video shows a man playing Doom using an old fashioned rotary phone. Strictly speaking, he's playing the game on a laptop, but he's rigged the phone to be a functional controller. 1 fires the gun, 2 moves left, 3 moves right, 4 goes up, and 5 moves down. I haven't figured out what 6 is supposed to do.
