At 2:47 of the original a reference to profanity was included, so that reference has been obscured in this edited version. This editing and re-sharing was done under fair use provisions of U.S. copyright law, and the video has been shared as “unlisted” on YouTube to limit any potential impact on the original video and publisher.
