    Perhaps a sweet goal would be to put together a
    vid with a few seconds of some stock footage of
    RMS talking about key points,  some title screens
    or captions linking to ogg formats and other
    FSF-related video,

That is something I might do (but it isn't particularly related to Emacs).

                       and (if possible) use free software
    tools to prepare a video that "youtube" can handle
    (which would be a flash/gnash vid).

Using that format would undermine our words, so we won't do that.

    Most people who view it via youtube will be using
    non-free software and the problematic flash format
    but it would still be a bit subversive in that the links
    would still lead *some* to explore GNU and ogg

On the contrary, the use of Flash would subvert our message.
This is a case where the medium conveys a message, and that
message contradicts what we say.
