The video does mention, clearly, that the 'sports drinks aides' do benefit athletes who participate in endurance events (more than a few hours). Stated at the 12:15 timecode, and again shortly thereafter. The majority of the argument against sports drinks are for people who do not partake in endurance events, which is the vast majority of people in the world.
Even among cyclists, a small number participate in events lasting longer than 2 hours.
An even smaller number participate in events lasting longer than 7hrs (avg)
An even smaller number participate in events that are multiple days (Furnace Creek 508 or RAAM, for example)
