My phone won't play your link. Can't see it.

But in general, if you want to be successful at replacing text over video, you have to be able to replace all the video that the text covers. Can you do that?

It is not that difficult of a shot. You do have to replicate any movement and camera focus with your new text. First step is to remove the old text with rotoscoping, and cloning. Then create your new text and drop it in. You'll need to roto the will down frame to overlay the new text and then recreate focus pulls on the text.

Replicating the text appearance should be the easiest part. You need to find the proper font, then create the text in Photoshop with the proper gradients so it has the proper coloring and then the highlights of the spotlighting on it. Take a screen shot of the text at it's largest size. Take that into Photoshop and use it as a template for creating your new text.
