Colors flicker in youtube video

Anyone have this issue with their display?

Recently noticed colors on youtube flickering intensely. First it affected the Reds, but on this viewing, it affects the Cyans as well.

Notice how the orange and red colored cars flicker in shade and intensity. Notice in the scene with the yellow car, the yellows stay stable but the red car keeps flickering.

This only happens in Youtube (not Netflix), happens for all resolutions 480p, 720p, 1080p, etc. And happens at all youtube playback speeds.

A few things to ignore:

The dashboard of the car is flickering, but thats due to LED light in garage. The flickering of the Tesla screen is absolutely noticeable and captured in video itself.

A few times the entire picture changes in brightness, like shown on the guy's blue shirt, thats due to the camera changing its exposure. It's really the Red/Orange/Cyan flickering that's the issue.
