I meant to add that I find it interesting that their own "text"
version of the video is not a "blow by blow" description ("The words
"I'm Stuck" bounce around the screen as if they are balls on a
handball court, etc..."), but instead it's a conceptual description of
what the video is intended to communicate. Which may be more in the
spirit of the law, and more useful too.
