Why the sky isn’t blue?

Nope, it’s not what you’re thinking. The title is neither wrong nor is it misleading.  I came across this awesome video and the question is quite straight forward “If sky is blue because of Rayleigh scattering, why isn’t it violet because it has a shorter wavelength? ” (to people from a science background). This question just blows away my mind and i am like “wow!  why didn’t i ask this question when i heard the “why is the sky blue?” answer. Check out this video and prepare to be amazed with the explanation.
