For a beginner/intermediate player the general rule is... if you can't learn a piece in a week, two at the most... you know the rest.

If that's you playing in the second video, than I would guess that you could learn this song in about a week with consistent practice (about 3 hrs/day working on it)....maybe slightly more or less.

I am an intermediate player....well if intermediate was a 5 on a scale from 1 to 10, then I'd probably be about a 3 or 4, (with each increase in the scale number increasing exponentially). I feel that I could learn the song in a 7-day time period with persistent dedication to it.
