Early in the video, the narrator said "our eyes just know that these (shown on the screen) videos are real", with the point being that later on he was going to surprise us that they were in fact renditions by his product.

But when I was looking at those images, I was actually thinking that they didn't look real to me. For some reason, I found myself thinking of Half-life 2.

This was my experience as well. I have lots of experience, but I decided to get a PhD both to scratch a personal itch and to maybe open some employment doors.

What I found was that it did open a few particular doors, including for my current job which I'm really enjoying.

However, the number of doors open, compared to if I'd just stopped at a Master's degree, is probably lower. Especially if you consider the years I was working on my PhD rather than keeping up with the latest buzzword-bingo skills.

I guess I had to learn the lesson the hard way, despite some pretty clear warnings: unless you're going for a career in academia or research, you're better off stopping at a masters.

Programmers do it bit by bit.
