Jimmy will soon turn 50 and thinks it's time he was famous. He passes himself off as an American ad producer and offers his services to a rodeo event in Québec, suggesting an ad campaign to attract US tourists.The organizers jump at the chance, but soon find out they've been duped when they meet the alleged creative.Jimmy then comes up with another plan: to steal the entire supply of beer for the St. Tite rodeo and blackmail the organizers into paying ,000. Jimmywork is a wonderfully off-the-wall mockumentary, far too funny to be true.
