Villainous acts

Morgan starts defrauding Drew Carey in the local drinking establishment called "The Warsaw Tavern". Drew is having a conversation with his friends Oswald, Kate, and Lewis. He jokes about losing weight through various ways such as removing lettuce from his cheeseburgers, making the tavern his gym, and switching to light beer. Morgan overhears the conversation and initiates a conversation with Drew by pitching his revolutionary beer diet. During the conversation, Morgan shows an alleged photo of himself before the diet. He says he invented a drug called Vitabeer - a weight loss pill that combines vitamins and blockers that prevents carbohydrates from turning into sugar and fat. After Morgan finds out Drew doesn't have enough money for Vitabeer, Morgan decides to offer a deal. He will give the first bottle for free if Drew will allow Morgan to take a shirtless photo of Drew. Morgan says the photo will only be shown to potential investors and clients. Drew agrees to the deal. Two weeks later, Drew discovers the fraud when his shirtless beer belly photo appears in a gigantic billboard promoting Vitabeer.

Morgan's billboard character assassination of Drew causes trouble at his workplace. Drew works at a Cleveland department store called Winfred-Louder as Assistant Director of Personnel. After the billboard is live, everyone in the office is talking about Drew especially Mimi Bobeck. When Drew is interviewing a candidate for a sales position, the interviewee recognizes Drew from the billboard. The interview goes downhill when the applicant starts staring at Drew's belly and asks for Drew to lift up his shirt to touch the famous belly. Drew escorts the man away from his desk. Mimi witnesses the disastrous interview and calls their boss Mr. Wick. Mr. Wick tells Drew that the billboard has to come down because it's creating a bad image for the company. Drew says he can't because he signed a release. After Mr. Wick's final warning, Drew becomes determined to take down the billboard after work. Drew suffers further abuse when Mimi has an ice sculpture created for the Board of Directors luncheon shaped as Drew from the defaming billboard.

Morgan gets his comeuppance during his final confrontation with Drew. After work, Drew and his friends climb up the billboard and start peeling off the Vitabeer advertisement. Morgan surprises Drew and his friends by showing up with a staple gun at the billboard after being tipped off by Mimi. Morgan inspects the damage to the billboard and insults Drew by wondering if one of the pieces of the ad was "a flap" or "a gill". While Morgan is preoccupied with the damage, Drew and his friends take Morgan's staple gun and staple him to the billboard unable to move his arms. After seeing that Morgan doesn't understand all the pain his fraud and character assassination has caused, Drew pulls down Morgan's pants revealing his white boxer shorts with light blue squares. Drew and his friends leave Morgan in his boxers and helplessly stapled to the billboard as some cars are coming by to look at what's happening.

After a work-related trip to Hawaii, Lewis follows up with Drew about Morgan. Drew states that Morgan went out of business and the Vitabeer billboard advertisement was taken down.
