Question about Daily Lesson with a GM 351


At 6:08, i.e. https://imgur.com/a/PFUrFfp, instead of the given 1...Kxg2, why not 1...Kf4 2.Kd5 (2.Bc2 Kg3) 2...Ba7 etc.? Black aims to swap g4 for e4, getting a passed pawn of their own, and White can't protect both pawns with the Bishop. 

I thought this also draws. Can someone tell me what am I missing?
