Ballers is a short that was released on June 21, 2017.
This video was part of an announcement of a meetup in Anaheim, California in the United States for VidCon.
|“||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.
The whole instrumental song can be heard here
