SOMETIMES ON OLDER CARS YOU CAN PUT THE KEY IN AND TURN THE STEERING WHEEL TO UNBIND THE LOCKIN MECHANISOM ALSO MAKING SURE THE TRANSMITION IS COMPLETELY IN THE PARKING POSISTION. SO JUST JIGLE THING AROUND TO SEE IF IT WILL RELEASE. HOWEVER IT MIGHT NEED TO BE REPLACED OR KEY IS SEVERLY WORN AND IN THAT CASE IT NEEDS TO BE REPLACED. GOOD LUCK

Maybe you need to find the right key 'cause this one could be the wrong one, or, worn out. Wiggle the wheel more. I know you wiggled it in the vid. Wiggle the key in and out. Try the second copy of the key.
