Chris Gethard, the "adopted comic" of IFC (who also popped up on "The Office" recently), is ready to take his fame to the next level. The question remains, is America ready?

In this new video, our perpetual sadsack hero goes door-to-door to diners in New Jersey to ask them to put up his headshot, with a quote from a movie written on it (so they'd know he's a celebrity, of course). For some stupid reason, they all decline. And that's when he moves onto other businesses. Who also decline.

This is the part where we demand that you watch The Chris Gethard Show on New York City public access and streaming on the Internet every Wednesday night at 11 p.m. EST.
