Lol, I just watched it myself. They show both Sullivan's Carson Pierre Scott building and HH Richardson's Marshall Field's Warehouse in Chicago when they say "Burnham built a magnificent collection of department stores". They don't even show the actual Marshall Fields flagship which was actually built by Burnham. What a mess, I can't imagine whoever made this had even the slightest knowledge of architectural history. It's as if they googled "department store Burnham Chicago" and the just inserted whatever images came up first in the Google image search.
Edit: Lol, I just googled "Burnham department store Chicago" and the results are almost entirely Carson Pierre Scott with a few images of the Marshall Fields warehouse mixed in. I have a feeling that's exactly the kind of "research" the makers of this video did.
