|“||Black Holes always win in the end.||”|
If Among Us Was a BFDI Challenge is a short animated video on the jacknjellify channel based around the game Among Us. The video is 5 minutes and 18 seconds long and was released on November 20, 2020.
Admin, part 1
The video starts with Gelatin attempting the infamous "Card Swipe" in Admin. Gelatin swipes the card, and it rejects it, with Remote saying that he is too slow, and he needs to try again. After a second attempt, with Remote saying it was too fast, Gelatin succeeds, but Remote actually meant that his card is gloopy. Gelatin doesn't believe her, though it is revealed that his card is goopy with little pieces of jelly stuck to it. Gelatin then licks the goop off the card.
Cafeteria, part 1
Eraser starts by "asking" Coiny about the emergency button. Then it flashbacks to BFDI 18. Eraser then points toward the Among Us "emergency button". With both of them not knowing what it actually is, Match and Pencil then insult them, and go to MedBay to do a scan together.
Admin, part 2
Back in Admin, the card is apparently swiped too aggressively, then too daintily. Gelatin then bursts into anger.
Unknown task room
Four and Lollipop enter the unknown room, which has a single task. Lollipop says that the task requires to shatter a vase with their voice. Lollipop attempts to do so, but fails. Four then shatters it with his Screechy, and Lollipop compliments him. She then asks why Four is wearing a body of a teletubby. Four said that he and X agreed to do this together. Lollipop then leaves, whilst tipping Four over, leaving him stuck.
Admin, part 3
Back in Admin, the card is swiped too circular, too squarely, then too pentagonaly. Gelatin then states that he doesn't even know what a pentagon is.
Match and Pencil both go to Medbay to do the Medbay scan. Match presses the "Go" button and says that it tickles while scanning. After Match's scan, it is Pencil's turn. Pencil chose the wrong move by accidentally breaking the touch-screen, which disallows Pencil to scan. Tennis Ball gives Pencil "a working model of the Medbay scanner", which turns out to be a deathtrap, and Tennis Ball turns out to be an impostor, as the deathtrap kills Pencil.
Admin, part 4
Back in Admin, the card is swiped too wiggly and straight. Bracelety then appears, and points out to Gelatin that the admin card was actually an 'Ice Cube Appreciation Post Card' all along. She also points out that the real admin card was on the floor behind him. Gelatin then proceeds to swipe the card, but as soon as he was about to swipe it, the doors close. X then appears behind him, revealing himself to be an impostor. X then kills Gelatin.
Cafeteria, part 2
Back in the cafeteria, Eraser proceeds to press the emergency button, which brings all of the BFB contestants (minus Pencil and Gelatin, who died earlier), including Four and X, to said cafeteria. Eraser then states his opinion that in the BFDI world, ships should not exist. This makes Bell alarmed, then the ship, which thought Eraser meant he was talking about what the contestants, Four and X were in, not relationships, disappears. Then, all of the BFB contestants get sucked into Black Hole, who says that Black Holes always win in the end.
- Tennis Ball and X are the impostors on the ship.
- Coincidentally, they were both voiced by Cary Huang.
- This is the first non-canon short that has featured the entire BFB cast since "Happy Birthday, Battle for BFDI!".
- This short marks the third time Black Hole kills in a non-canon video, with the first two instances being "Happy Birthday, Battle for BFDI!" and the "Instagram Promotion" for the BFDI Character Guide.
- This is the first BFDI short and the second video from jacknjellify to make it onto the trending tab of YouTube.
- The short is known to be the first video to trend in the US.
- Eraser and Coiny directly reference their lines about an emergency button back in "Reveal Novum".
- Eraser talking about "ships" and how they should not exist could be a reference to the many fan-made ships regarding BFDI characters. Ship is short for "relationship", and refers to non-canon romantic relationships between certain characters in a certain genre.
- According to the video, this was made simultaneous to AnimationEpic's ship.
- Lollipop references the British children's television series Teletubbies when she questions why Four is wearing a "hide unethically scraped off the body of an innocent Teletubby".
- This is also a joke surrounding the design of the crewmates in Among Us, which people have pointed out looks like the body of a Teletubby with no arms and head.
- Pencil is burnt to death by a replica of the MedBay Scanner, made by Inventor Tennis Ball.
- Gelatin is killed offscreen by X.
- Four, X, and the 61 remaining contestants are all swallowed into Black Hole (except for Book, due to an animation error/goof/mistake).
- Tree did not show up when Eraser pushed the Emergency Meeting button, despite Tree appearing when the ship disappeared, and when he got swallowed by Black Hole.
- Book did not show up when Black Hole swallowed everyone, despite Book appearing when Eraser pressed the Emergency Meeting button in the Cafeteria.
- Ice Cube was normal-sized when the ship disappeared.
- In the Emergency Meeting scene, David and Dora's bodies did not appear, due to the floor of the ship being the same color.
- In this short, Eraser says that his brain is telling him to press the button.
- However, in BFDI 25, he says that erasers don't have brains.
