Having some trouble with high-fives and hand slaps? There's someone who can help, he's Slap Back Jack.
Synopsis: Slap Back Jack High Five Master is a kid friendly stop motion short narrated in rhyme. It begins when superstar baseball player, Bub Stocky, hits a walk off Grand Salami to win the big ball game for his team the Bronx Buffalo, but when he tries to celebrate with his teammates, he flubs his high fives, loses out on his lows, and punks out on his pounds. He feels embarrassed and clumsy, so his coach suggests he see the hand slap specialist, High-Five Master, Slap Back Jack. Heeding Coach’s advice, Bub makes the trip and Jack trains Bub in the art of high-five combo’s. Bub returns to play a double header with his team, and he hits another huge homer. He runs the bases as fast as he can, crosses home plate for a winning run, then Bub pauses, building his teammates’ suspense, then shows the guys his new moves.
