The point of the video - that we should not be incredulous or disparaging of another person's disabilities - is valid and worth arguing for. But the example chosen does not support the argument well. I have not the smallest shred of absolute pitch ability, yet I did equally well on the color and sound questions. No, I could not name B flat and F when I heard them. But I knew that the first tone was pretty high and the second was lower. Just as I knew that the first color was pretty high frequency and the second was lower. My ability to identify the first color as "blue" only means I could place it somewhere in a fairly wide segment of the spectrum.
