I had similar experiences in Bangladesh, where a dentist replaced a filling free,
It may have been free to you but the dentist paid for it. So no, it was not free.

The only thing free is the air you breathe and what you find on your own in nature. Everything else is paid for by somebody.

"Free", with respect to cost, in the common everyday English language, the one most of us use, means "at no obvious or direct charge to the recipient". It is also clearly the meaning the OP's video intended to convey.
