VI. It hits the dominos.
VII. The dominos hits the yellow car.
VIII. The yellow car hits the dominos.
IX. The last domino is attached to a ribbon.
X. When it falls the ribbon pulls the domino on the other side.

XII. The dominos hit the cups which move forward.
XIII. It hits the other line of dominos.
XIV. The rock then falls off the dominos.

XIX. The smiley face knocks down the connected dominos.
XX. The connected dominos pull the string.
XXI. Thus making the marbles fall into a cup.
