Viral video showing Sun's motion through galaxy is wrong

Unsurprisingly, a Viral video showing Sun’s motion through galaxy is wrong.

However, there’s a problem with it: It’s wrong. And not just superficially; it’s deeply wrong, based on a very wrong premise. While there are some useful visualizations in it, I caution people to take it with a galaxy-sized grain of salt.
