Well, I'm not going to watch a video, but here's a link to the FDA's page of
information on CFLs:


which says:

Do CFLs emit UV?

All fluorescent lamps emit some UV. Typical fluorescent lamps, including
CFLs, which consumers would encounter, emit very low levels of UV. In order
to measure any UV radiation from these lamps, very sensitive measuring
equipment must be used."
