Practical Joke Six Years in the Making
Perry Caravello wanted to be an actor, and his friends told him he would be. In fact, they signed him up to play the leading role in a film they were making, Windy City Heat. Unfortunately for Perry, they weren't actually shooting a movie. They were just stringing him along, trying to figure out how long they could keep him believing that they were making a movie. He kept believing, for six long years, bolstered by an unshakeable faith in his own Star Power. Even though the friends weren't shooting a movie, they did shoot footage of the entire practical joke, which has now resulted in a documentary on Comedy Central titled, appropriately enough, Windy City Heat.

I am sorry. That was not a real movie. Okay, if so why was the lead character Perry so campy? He was not even believable when he was supposedly mad at Mole and tried to attack him. That was not real anger. His demeanor never changed whether he was happy or sad or mad. He was a bad actor in a bad hoax of a hoax!
