From director Rich Moore and the world of Wreck-It Ralph - sort of - comes the 28-minute mockumentary "Garlan Hulse: Where Potential Lives," about one socially maladjusted adult's quest to reclaim the world-record high score on Fix-It Felix Jr.

The obvious point of reference here is The King of Kong, based around a similar achievement in the game of Donkey Kong, which was Ralph's obvious template. But fans of awkward underdog documentaries like American Movie and Anvil: the Story of Anvil will notice several spot-on spoofs of all their hallmarks. With a deadpan tone that's very different from Ralph's joke-a-second pace, this certainly marks Moore as a versatile director (and decent on-camera performer, too) to watch.

Set aside a half hour and watch the movie after the jump...
