I just feel bad for it. It looks like they cut off its head then poured hot sauce on it. Seriously wtf?

It's actually the salt (sodium chloride) of the soy sauce - because the NaCl is in water it is present as Na+ and Cl- ions, the Na+ ions diffuse into the axon of the octopus (octopus' nerves are close to the skin) and causes action potentials (electrical impulses) to be produced (via ion gradients) in the octopus' neurones which get transmitted to the muscles and cause the octopus' body to move even after death.

I remember someone explaining this a while ago. When they pour the soy sauce on it, the amount of salt in it causes the muscles to spasm

It's head is cut off thus instantly ending it's life, no suffering. What you see are reflexes that are left over in the body, much like hitting your kneecap with a hammer would make your leg flinch even if someone removed your brain.

To a normal being, yes. But clearly this is the equivalent of life energy for the dead cephalopod. It is foolish to think that the means of hydration would be exactly the same for every life form. Try pouring water on that poor soul. Go ahead, submerge it. It won't move. It requires a more complicated means of hydration than you could possibly understand! Foolish, simply foolish.
