Is there any way to reverse my logo's color based on my background video color?

I need to put a logo to the corner of my video and I want that logo to change color due to my background video. For the dark parts of my video, I want the logo white and for the light parts I want it black. But it will take so much time if I do it with color fill effect's key frames, because the video is a bit long. Also I tried the blending options as well but they don't work for this unfortunately. Is there any way to do it?

We can use expressions, specifically sampleImage(), to drive the fill color based on the brightness of another layer.

I've set this up in a sample project here:
