from an aircraft in the distance in the same general direction.
Since the choppers are in the daytime and a wooded area, not the highway, the connection is tenuous at best. As you said, not much info to go on.

Good analysis I must say
I have lived near a Major International Airport my entire life, and I in fact live within a FOV which encompasses Aircraft on Approach and Takeoff
from 3 Major International Airports, as well as MIL.
Having laid out the aforementioned, even I have been taken by surprise once through my view of landing aircraft at an angle which I never witnessed
them before. I remember seeing what I thought were 6-8 Unknown Aircraft, BRIGHTLY illuminated, just hanging around like Christmas Lights on a String
in the Night Sky, side-by-side. It turned out however, that it was nothing more than a visual trick of Commercial Airliners in a long extending
Landing Pattern with their Landing Lights engaged. So your airport hypothesis is definitely understandable and logical in nature.
On another note, we have no information on where this videographer lives, so how do we determine the commonality of MIL Helos flying over his
location? The supposed "Color" means nothing either, as the vast Majority of MIL Helos are colored Black and/or Dark Drab Green. If this guy wants
to truly freak himself out, he should go take an Orienteering course near an Air Calvary Unit (As I did), and watch as Fully Armed Apache AH-64's pop
up over the Treetops and buzz you lol, although I found the experience exciting, not scary.
