I think viola is invariant. Maybe it's the name of the flower violet.

shouldn't purple be violo? since il libro is masculine.

It's one of the colours with an invariable ending, along with rosa and blu:

They never change, just have to eventually remember them, got me too!

The speaker says "VIola" instead of "viOla". And the sound is so distorted -- it sounded like VEEolud -- that I couldn't even make a guess as to the intended word.
