You need a compositing package like Adobe After Effects or Discreet Combustion. I'm pretty sure that kid didn't do this, but someone with video/graphics abilities that downloaded the clip and had a little fun with it.
The industry terminology for doing this type of graphics work on video is called rotoscoping.

I think this should get moved to Digitial imaging for better assistance.

Rotoscoping/Compositing is the process of adding to or taking away elements in moving pictures i.e. film or video. The entire film and video community, from Lucas Films to the local TV spot production company, uses this in one way or another. If you want to learn more, check out the book: The Art and Science of Digital Compositing ISBN: 0-12-133960-2
The concepts and practices are too involved to discuss and learn over a forum.

You've got Forum A.D.D. don't you? Keep all your questions under one post and you'll get better help.

Adobe After Effects would be your best bet. Then read the manual and a how-to book about After Effects.

The only reason im posting in so many posts is because no one is responding. so how can i get better help if no one is responding?
