Hi Sean,

Have you tried watching the video with Subtitles turned on?

I apologize for the confusion on my part, but I assure you it was not an 
impulsive response to a subject line. I sincerely thought that the 
YouTube submission was a prank.

Please resubmit your proposal in a more accessible format and I'll be 
more than happy to review it and give feedback if I can.

Respectfully,

Eihab
