Plot[edit | edit source]
Willy's Beach takes place as the first episode in a new reality series by Willy, the creator of many other reality shows. Willy chooses two contestants to play Willy's Beach. In it, the two contestants compete in 3 challenges. The contestants are British pop mega-star Buns Duddley. The other contestant is LARPer Daniel Lancaster, better known by his LARP name Morgoroth. The winner will be crowned Son of the Beach.
Challenge 1[edit | edit source]
The first challenge is to create a theme song for Willy's Beach. Buns uses his hit single "I Like Cheese In The Nighttime". Daniel rips off "The Ecstacy of Gold". Buns wins because his song is original.
Challenge 2[edit | edit source]
The second challenge is a sandcastle making contest. Daniel employs his LARP techniques to win the challenge this time around.
Challenge 3[edit | edit source]
The third challenge is a duel to the death, rendering the other two challenges useless. The two contestants take the fight up a large flight of stairs, where ultimately, Daniel kills Buns. But Buns' assistant, the Russian bodyguard Hanz, kills Daniel, and Willy crowns Hanz Son of the Beach.
In the aftermath, a public funeral is held for Buns and Daniel, although no one showed up. Hanz moved back to Moscow and opens up a salon. Willy's Beach receives incredibly low ratings and is pulled off the air after just one episode.
History[edit | edit source]
This movie was filmed at Capitola Beach, California, where Detective Awesome and the Case of Vial Three was filmed. The entire movie was structured around the beach, although the areas that were filmed in Capitola were not only the beach, but a beach house and the town as well.
The original two contestants that TP thought up to play Willy's Beach were a trucker/redneck hillbilly and a self-absorbed teenager, to be played by Layne and Kevin respectively.
