Well, the easiest way to point out that it's wrong is the fact that all the planets orbiting our sun are on the same elliptic plane as the galaxy. Not perpendicular as the video shows it. That's the point where you can stop the video and dismiss it entirely.
Sorry, but that's not right. The ecliptic plane (the plane in which the Earth orbits the Sun) is tilted at 60.2 degrees relative to the galactic plane. It's closer to perpendicular than parallel.
Well, that's one on me.
