I'm not watching that video without seeing the show, but recently I saw the one about Apocalypto, where the dude repeatedly called the Mexicans of that movie Mayans. They were Aztecs (or Mexica). Perhaps that's just the need to produce content making the creator tired and sloppy, but not a quality channel.

The Mayan Empire included parts of Mexico: "Apocalypto [set in Mexico's Yucatán peninsula] is a spectacular movie about the decline of the Maya Civilization that was directed by Mel Gibson in 2006. It was the first "mainstream" movie in the United States to have a script entirely in an indigenous language - Yucatec Maya."

Well I thought the movie takes place specically in Aztec area, with the capital where the prisoners are taken, being Tenochtitlan and the "king" being Moctezuma. I guess "behind the scenes" stuff would have told me otherwise. Anyway, cool movie.
