Its cool enough to see twice!lol.
They are suppose to be rather intelligent.

Its using a machete in one of the vids.

More likely cut in two then discarded, and the octopus just got lucky to find them both together.
On the other hand, maybe it climbed a coconut tree and picked one. If they can pry open a bivalve husking a coconut shouldn't be too much tougher...
