Unfortunately this did not work for me.

Step 5 - When I let go of the mouse it does not delete outside of the shape. What am I doing wrong?

I had the same problem, but I realized I had to click on the white square in the vector mask layer. In his tutorial it looks like he's just showing you that the square is what happens when you select "reveal all" but you actually have to click on that square. :P I hope that helps you!
