Yes...looking at the video...something is definitely not right.
Let's assume that the Apple folks did a good job testing the computer. With the sort of problems shown in the video...it would be pretty hard for the Apple folks to miss that after 2 days of tested (and you saw it after just 20 minutes at home).
I'm going to suggest two things:
1. It looks like you have some external items plugged into the computer. Unplug everything from the computer...and operate the computer in another room...just to isolate anything that might be environmental.
2. If idea #1 shows no improvement...try booting the computer from an external hard drive with nothing but a fresh install of the Mac OS on it. Then operate it for a while and see if the problem persists.
