They at some point done this video and was quite shocked at the lack of accurate info but what do you all think.

It is unusual for just how sloppily researched it is, but it's hardly unique for all its distortions and outright misrepresentations.
I suppose it's a good thing that the lecturer is so full of himself and and obviously doesn't expect to be taken seriously.
