Is there a hook or template file where I can change the placeholder text on the #comment textarea w/in the comment form?

Jetpack loads the form via an iFrame which prevents changing the placeholder text with JS

Please help, thanks!

The comment form is generated from another domain via the iframe. While I was accessing the iframe using jQuery content() it returned me Permission denied to access. It means the Jetpack is Cross Site Scripting protected and you cannot edit the placeholder.
