I think this is a management training video designed to exaggerate the different roles people take in meetings.

And these people exist: Mr short-haircut exec just wants the business and will say "yes" to the impossible in order to close the deal. The client is asking for the impossible and is unwilling to admit ignorance. Her colleague doesn't know shit from shinola, but needs to have input. Mr long-hair is trying to compromise without realising it's unworkable - and the poor bloody "expert" gets dumped on (and will end up bitter, twisted or freelance)

How did the "expert" get the job in the first place? There are several ways in which 7 lines can be, quite honestly, described as perpendicular. He could, for example, have specified that the lines shoudl be drawn in 7-dimensional space and then handed the problem back to the designer. And as for transparent red - hand me an average OHP pen and a piece of OHP film and I'll draw you a transparent line, square or whatever (in other words you can see shapes through it - they'll just look red).
