Client: The Clapper
License: Music In Film
Eddie Krumble is content with his low-paying, but always interesting gig as a professional audience member in infomercials. When a late night show host – seemingly based on Jimmy Kimmel – notices Krumble’s enthusiastic performance on the infomercials and makes the footage into the latest viral hit, Krumble reacts in a way almost nobody else in Los Angeles would – he wants to be left alone.
While that gives The Clapper a unique angle, it does seem to stunt the film’s creativity after forty or fifty minutes of Krumble freaking out about not wanting to be famous. When Krumble finally agrees to appear on the show, his appearance is an everyman who really doesn’t want to be part of the zaniness of late night gags.
The film stars Ed Helms as Eddie Krumble (The Clapper), Tracy Morgan as Eddie’s best friend and Amanda Seyfriend as Judy (Eddie’s girlfriend).
