The Why: YouTube is strong in How-To and Tools. So this is an attempt at a How-To, Tool-oriented YouTube Short. I've also added a second YouTube video with some Notes and Annotations.
Here's the original YouTube Short:
And this is the EXPANDED version of the YouTube Short, with added Notes and Explanations.
Some headline suggestions from popular YouTube consultants VidIQ:

The Script, roughly:
Gorilla Glue, the original version, expands, a lot. It foams.
The bead you put down slowly grows 2 to 3 times.
This can be helpful if you’re glueing things together that have irregular surfaces, or little holes, or gaps, or imperfections.
Gorilla Glue will fill those in as it expands.
Makers, Creators, Placemakers -- this WILL come in handy on real world projects on our corroded, beaten-up planet.
But this can be a problem if you don’t allow for that inevitable expansion. It will leak out all over the place. (Don’t worry too much. You can trim it with a straight edge once it dries.)
By the way, this only applies to the original version. Gorilla Glue now has many products, and they are all different.
But the original version — the one that made the brand famous — still foams, which can be very helpful on the right project, or kind of messy.
And that bonus reminder: It doesn’t work on your hair
