Attempting to "cream everyone's jeans," Tenacious D performs "Cosmic Shame" at open mic night. Then they're off to Captain Ed's Records for a t-shirt signing session. Nobody shows up, and Captain Ed (Ernest Garcia) lays heavy tales on the guys in an attempt to disprove the Rock Star Mythos. He screams, "let the dream die," claiming that the Rock Star Mythos is as phony as Sasquatch or the Easter Bunny. Jack (Jack Black) and Kyle (Kyle Gass) go through various stages of accepting the death of their dream. On an emotional camping trip, Sasquatch (John C. Reilly) appears, triggering an extended, impromptu performance of "Sasquatch." The D take the appearance of Sasquatch as a sign that Captain Ed was wrong about the Rock Star Mythos. Sasquatch temporarily takes up drums for the band, but Jack and Kyle decide against remaining a "power trio." Sasquatch is heartbroken, but he supports their wishes when he sees how "kick ass" they are at open mic night.
