Among the prominent names, David Miller, Faf du Plesis, Imran Tahir and Quinton de Cock along with others have worked in the video. Shot around at various places, at the ground, inside the hotel room, on the massage table, while jogging, inside the wash room, while having shower the guys create a lot of humor in wishing ABD happy birthday.
