    $\begingroup$ I hope the answer is not net catch. $\endgroup$ – Annosz Oct 24 at 12:15

    $\begingroup$ I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the title implies it is to be solved by people with no knowledge of ASL; however, by definition this group of people will not be able to solve it! Meanwhile, to those who do know ASL, it is not a puzzle at all, merely a translation. In its current state it will invite lots of speculative answers. $\endgroup$ – Stiv Oct 24 at 17:29

    $\begingroup$ I think this type of thing could potentially work as a puzzle, but it would have to be very inferable for people who don't know any ASL. (Perhaps providing translation samples and then a message to be translated, like the International Linguistics Olympiad questions.) But as-is, this doesn't seem gettable at all. $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Oct 24 at 23:57

The video literally says

"Net throw help catch".
In context, it could say "help catch it by throwing a net".

This isn't really a puzzle so much as it is an exercise in ASL interpreting.
