This is the McGurk effect. It is well known in psycholinguistic circles. It
is done by dubbing the audio of [ba] to the video of [ga]. Field linguists
(like me) have no advantage over the layperson here. It's just weird, and,
if the psycholinguists are right, constitutes evidence that vision plays a
significant role in speech perception.
