My Name Is Marc, And You Can Count On It

Everyone has that local commercial. You know the one. Late at night. Weird. Hilarious. Legendary. Who made that? Why? Documentary film My Name Is Marc, And You Can Count On It goes behind the scenes at Norton Furniture in Cleveland, Ohio, and meets the man who created his own infamously bizarre late night TV commercials for the store. This film — titled after his famous catchphrase — sets out to find the method to his madness.
