To promote the release of Wreck-It Ralph on Blu-Ray and DVD, Disney released this oddball mockumentary parodying the Donkey Kong high score documentary The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters. Wreck-It Ralph director takes on the role of faux interviewer for Garlan Hulse: Where Potential Lives. The titular Garlan was once the high-scorer on the Fix-It Felix Jr. arcade game until it all came crumbling down. Now he's on a mission to reclaim the high score—and his happiness.

It may seem at first that this 28-minute mockumentary is poking unwarranted fun at its eccentric, sad-sack subject. But by the end, just like Ralph, Garlan becomes a character you can root for, even as fate keeps throwing elbows—and deli slicers—in his path.
