Marty and Bill’s joyride in a 1937 Cord 812 Sportsman, and the accidental foiling of a robbery, is caught on video by their friend, aspiring teen reporter Elizabeth Murphy. The video goes viral, and Marty and Bill, or at least their accidental alter egos, Nothing Man and the Purple Zero, become instant celebrities.

Is this a fleeting moment of celebrity? Or is the trio living up to a destiny foretold by a dying principal who reminded them that “some have greatness thrust upon them”?
