Animation ontop of a still image and reflection.

So I was browsing around Reddit and I saw this.

I would like to learn how he achieved this..

What I think I know about it so far:

-Mask out the spinning top, and lay it ontop of the image.

However the problem that gets me is making the reflection.
I guess he defined a plane to set the "desk" and then made the reflection.

Is there some sort of tutorial that could show me how to achieve the lighting effect like this?

Thanks!
