That was clever.

He also recommended WD-40 or some sort of lubricant which I forgot to mention.

Bummer! I’ve had bits get stuck before. Do you have picture or details about how it is suck? Generally I start with wiggling it around, try to lightly bang the bit (not the drill) against something, then graduate to a pair of pliers. Sometimes it can take some working on it, and then it will free up.

But if you’ve already spent some time with those methods, the last resort is probably drilling the bit out of there, though you’d have to be particularly careful, since the bit holder is probably about the same hardness as the bit itself.
