    • Synopsis
    • EDDIE KRUMBLE (Helms) is a “clapper”, someone who is paid to be in the audience for infomercials, and he books any gig he can get. A late night talk show host ridicules Eddie’s repeat appearances on the infomercials in varying unintentionally hilarious disguises and calls for a nationwide search to find him. Eddie, apprehensive of the attention and caught up in a budding romance with JUDY (Seyfried), tries to avoid the fame at all costs. Ultimately left with no other choice, he goes on the late night show and embraces the fame, which backfires, Judy gets unnerved at the attention and leaves Eddie. Chewed up and spit out by the media, he must find a way to restore his reputation, rekindle his relationship with Judy, and return to his abnormal life.
