Yup, it's bullshit. Of course coincidence/unintentional overlap of ideas is possible when you're talking about pop culture, but this writer knew about the video & didn't bother to give credit. I've taught college students before & I must say, I don't understand the mentality of people who plagiarize, when they could just cite their source, get credit for knowing what's already been said about their topic, & produce (as Wiggs pointed out above) a BETTER finished product. There's no rule against quoting/summarizing/linking to someone else's work, but you have to give credit.
