From a content stance, very neat!

From a video technical stance, it has some pretty nasty aliasing from overly aggressive sharpening. Maybe deinterlace, but I think it's entirely oversharpening at work here. Even the edges of the video halo/ring.

What's the story with all those black flecks? Was this transferred from cine or are they just trying to make it look old?

It also suffers from Youtube harsh compression artifacts because it's only 720, @ 1080 he would have gotten away with better compression ratio.

I guess given the 60's and the number of edits involved it was shot and edited on film. The specks being black suggests this is a positive (reversal) film print dupe, or a video copy of it. It's obviously an advert requiring duplicate copies to be made for distribution. The natural distribution format at that time was 16mm b/w or color reversal film, which could be run through TV station telecine machines. Classy little promo.
