That's the map!

What's the most common haplogroups in Egypt?

Actually, I like Ann's hypothesis that the video was simply showing
stock footage.

If the peaks were actually so clear that you could read them from an
online video clip I suspect they would have been published, so clear
heads probably would conclude that the vide was not showing Tut's
actual DNA.

Here's the map you are probably thinking of.

Although R-M269 diversity is high in the Near East, its frequency is
pretty low. And within R-M269, the WAMH (which is what Robert deduced
from the video) is even rarer still.
