Is this your attempt or Corey's? Edit, nevermind I see its Corey's. I really want to try it now. Maybe in slow motion.

I may try this technique and report back, because it looks more clear cut what you are supposed to do.
I've found for the 9-ball soft break, you have to break from the side and hit the 1-ball square with slight draw.

I still see it as, "Bonus Ball." I've been scarred for life by their staff I guess. Nothin' a beer can't fix though.

I haven't tried this break, but the uber soft Corey Deuel 9-ball break on the BB worked just as well on the 9' table (no 3-pt rule). The cloth and the template rack were the key ingredients.

I mean at 5%, it should at least clean out some of those stubborn brain cells, but we're going to need a bigger box. That's a pre-dinner serving there.

Here is my attempt. 45 min of breaking and racking condensed into 5 minutes (showing only the break). 25 total breaks. Pocketed a ball on 2 breaks!

For those that think Corey is stealing, go ahead and try this on your own. If you don't have it absolutely nailed, you will be leaving hanger outs to your opponent.

My balls are a well matched set. There were no gaps during racking, I inspected each rack very carefully. I was using a Magic Rack brand template. I did not hit each rack dead square. But even if you throw out those attempts, my make percentage is probably 1/10.

...
On one of those breaks, the second-row ball got kissed into the side.

The timing on your table looks very different from the table Corey was on. Lots of kiss-outs of the intended balls by the corner balls.

Here is Dr. Dave's take on the symmetrical break:

It appears that Kamui posted on YouTube in 2017 about this:
