Why Sephardi pronunciation

Q i have a question:
If you are ashkenazi? why you recite the kaddish in a video in nusach sephardi?
Thanks for advance

A. When I was in grade school at a Jewish Day School over 40 years ago, the Israel official Hebrew language institute decided Sephardi pronunciation was preferred so our schools switched. Most Ashkenazi synagogues, at least non-Orthodox ones used sephardi pronunciation now.
