Normal alternator behaviour?

Hi all, I have noticed what I think is an oddity with my alternator that I'm not sure is a problem or not.

Essentially if you blip the throttle, as the revs fall the voltage will dip on the way down. I found a video in YouTube which is making me think maybe this is not normal.

Anyone care to weigh in?

I'll try and grab a video in my car tomorrow.

Edit: actually I realised I took a video of this last year. Just uploaded it:
