The video is about the cancellation of the 2026 Commonwealth Games in Victoria, Australia. The games were supposed to be hosted by regional cities in Victoria, but the state's Premier, Daniel Andrews, announced that they would no longer proceed due to the high cost.

The estimated cost of hosting the games had increased from 2.6 billion dollars to about six to seven billion dollars, which the Premier deemed unaffordable. This decision has disappointed and angered many people. To soften the blow, the Victorian government plans to continue upgrading regional sporting facilities, housing, and tourism.

The cancellation raises the question of which city or state will now host the games, as some Australian states have already ruled themselves out. The video ends by stating that it remains to be seen if anyone else will step in to save the day.
