Im not sure im gettin you.
this CC (subtitles) are auto-genareted (machine), which means the video wasn't uploaded with any subtitles.
anyway, since this particular YT video is blocked from adding addional "real" subtitles,
i suggest contact the uploader and ask them to "open" the option for the "communtiy" to add subtitles.
meanwhile, the best is you can do to press the 3 dot menu and choose "open transcript".

Hi suadnovic:
Youtube auto transcription are in mode "karaoke" so the lines would overlaped between them.
To correct this, you need to take the begining of second line, substract about 100 ms and use it as ending of the first line. And then the 3rd for 2nd and so on.
I have a google spreadsheet that does that for me.
I uploaded you the srt corrected, so you can correct the other problems that a karaoke have, like the speakers mixed in the same line, etc...

That sounds interesting.
Could you provide this spreadsheet so that one can have a look at it?

I have stored many videoclips from John Olivers Last Week Tonight with the same problem and I'd like to improve that.

Hi arcchancellor:

Of course I can. I will be delighted to.

I will send you a PM with an url to the spreadsheet. Just give me a little time to make it 'more understandable' .
I have noticed the rest of the world do not share my logic at all. :)
