Hi there!

There is currently not a way to add text to a video block so that the text will wrap around the video image.  There are a couple of things that you can do to work around this.  The first option would be to turn on the caption feature for the video block.  This will allow you to enter text under the block.  To turn on captions for the block, hover over the video block and click on the little gear icon in the yellow toolbar.  Click on the Settings button in the pop up and toggle the button to on for the Captions field.

The other option, which I can see you have already done in your campaign, is to take a screenshot of the video image and upload the image into a combo block so that you can add text.  You can then link the image to the YouTube link so that when users click the image in their inbox, they will be taken directly to the YouTube video.  

I have submitted a feature request attached to your case for the ability to add text to a video block so that this is on our teams radar.

Feel free to reach out with any questions or if there is anything else I can do to help.

Just following up here to let you know that this request is under consideration by our product team. While we don't have plans to implement this in our current product roadmap, we hope to expand the combo block functionality to include buttons, videos and greater flexibility in general. Please add your vote here if you have a specific use case for this expanded functionality!
