In an office setting, the supervisor is in need of an important documents for her meeting that’s happening in a few hours, but the file is in another office which is 8-10 blocks away. Both of the intern wants to go fetch it for her. And so begins a race.
The intern with the red shirt run to the bus stop to see there a huge line of people and not a sight of the bus. In the other split screen the intern with blue shirt takes out his boosted board and place it on the ground and proceeds to ride it,
The red intern sees the blue intern zooming by while he waits for the bus, he couldn’t take it anymore and calls for an uber car. While the blue shirt is going uphill and zooming through the maze of the traffic.
While stuck in the traffic the red-shirted intern sees the blue intern heading back to the office so he hurries back too. When the red-shirted intern gets to the office and he sees the blue-shirted intern handing the supervisor the important documents and getting praised for it. The red-shirted intern feels sad and the blue-shirted intern notices it.
The blue-shirted intern heads back to his office and bring his spare boosted board with him and hand it to the red-shirted intern and says “Give your life a little boost.”
As their supervisor is in a meeting so they get an extra break hour which they spend cruising around on the boosted board.
