Probably.

The video is more making the point that even if luck is only a fraction of the recipe for success, it plays an outsized role in said success.

haha, potentially. I think that TLDR has become a "word" and no longer refers only to the meaning of its acronym. It's similar to how a "bulldozer" no longer has anything to do with a bull, although originally it did.

Now I’m wondering about the history of bulldozer.

You can get the gist of the video pretty quickly. And, if need be just speed it up a little.
