Your video is loading please wait 5 seconds
Using HiRISE Data - http://hirise.lpl.arizona.edu/PSP_001890_1995 - an animation over the Mars Pathfinder landing site in Ares Valles. The terrain has accurate vertical scaling and is not exaggerated.
The Mars Pathfinder 'Presedential' Panorama is used to show the local terrain in context. A black marker-post marks the landing site during the fly-around.

He's referring to the marker that points out the location of the Pathfinder landing site on the image.
I am assuming you are joking.
OK at 0:23 you can distinctly see a black monolith of 1:4:9 proportions. Now, I am nervous and will never get to sleep...
