Edge rotate issue

Edge rotate issue

Hi, I'm following this basic tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4CI20hF5_AM

At 1:06 he uses Edge Rotate. I'm just learning what it is and how to use it, but Ive followed along perfectly (I think) and still the rotating doesn't work the way his does.

When I select the edge I want to rotate, all it does is appear to skew the selected faces along the red (X?) axis. Does not rotate around the blue axis as his does.

I attached my file here if anyone could shed some light please.

Thank you.

While your object is selected go->Tools->Coord System->Click OK for Burn Transform to reset the scale to 1:1:1 to avoid shearing and keep on with edge rotating.
