That's a 15 minute video. What specifically are you wondering about?

I watched the first couple minutes. The gist is right - job descriptions are often wishlists and not accurate.

The video is about exaggerated job listings.
Any additional advises on how to tackle this issue?

Yeah. Ignore the job listing and apply to jobs you don't think you are qualified for.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
