John Doe's story causes an instant media sensation, so Ann finds a bum to "play" him. She selects former minor league ballplayer turned hobo Long John Willoughby, who goes along with the scheme. Soon he's making motivational speeches on the radio, and becoming a popular national figure, while corporate misbehavior, consumerism, and the attempted subversion of the resultant popular movement follow.
