Plot

Have you ever felt like you were somewhere, where you didn't belong?
 
— Michael Huang
The contestants with arms (except Flower) are standing in a clearing together. A scarlet red ball is thrown to Eraser and then it is tossed from one to another. Three more balls that are blue, green, and purple, are thrown into the crowd and the contestants also play with them. Golf Ball walks over and frowns because she can't bounce a ball. Then Ice Cube looks at Golf Ball and smiles before frowning at Golf Ball's expression and then looks at the contestants with arms playing with the balls. Michael's voiceover begins and talks about belonging. Spongy, and Tennis Ball walk in, but then the scene is cut out and Michael Huang starts telling the details about VidCon in the Mix Restaurant in Anaheim, California.

Trivia

  • Michael Huang confirmed in one of his videos in the channel Fernozzle that the animation was done by coding.
  • Flower is the only character with arms to not be in the video.
    • David and Dora also have arms, but they stay stationary in BFDI.
  • The colors of the balls are the colors used for the team logos of the Squishy Cherries, Squashy Grapes, and Another Name. But the reason for the purple ball is unknown.
  • Match has her first catch at the latest time out of anybody.
  • This is the first short to feature a huge cast of characters.
  • Teardrop, Firey and Book are the three characters to catch three balls consecutively.
    • Coincidentally, they passed the blue ball to each other, as the order follows: Teardrop - Firey - Book.
    • Coincidentally, each of them are on the three teams in BFDIA (W.O.A.H. BunchTeam No-Name, and FreeSmart respectively) and have all been on Team No-Name at one point.
  • The song is featured in various episodes of Battle for BFDI.
  • It could have been a possibility that Flower was throwing the balls to everyone, which explains why she wasn't in the video.
    • This has been proven false, however, as edits show that her body asset doesn't work correctly.
