Oh! The third search term for clicks is an auction item that sounds like ‘billion’.
The volleyball ball ‘Wilson’, who became the only friend of Tom Hanks when he was left on a deserted island in the movie ‘Cast Away’, which was released in 2000, was sold at an auction for over 360 million won.
The main character, who has struggled for survival in an airplane accident, is a fictional friend made like a human face in order not to go crazy.

Netizens responded, “I think Jobs’s first computer is still working. Seeing it in real life makes my heart race.”, “Memories of Wilson! It was the first time I cried because of a volleyball ball.
