Is Plumbers's Putty a Viable Clay Bar Alternative?

Is Plumbers Putty as good as Clay Bar? In this video, YouTuber 1ROAD explores whether or not plumbers putty is a viable alternative for a clay bar, an engineered elastic clay compound that removes tiny particles from your car’s surface. He offered this brief intro:

“I bought a Mother’s Clay Bar kit that came with two (2) 100-ounce clay bars as well as Mother’s Instant Detailer, and a microfiber rag. All in all, I think the Mother’s clay bar kit is a good value but being the cheapskate I am I was curious if something like this plumbers putty could do the same job while costing much less.”
