The story begins with Tom walking down a street and seeing a video camera in a store's window with a sign saying "Make your own Movies!" He then runs around the area in circles carrying the new video camera and its equipment until Edd spots him and asks what he's doing. This causes Tom to stop in mid-air and excitedly tell Edd that he just bought a new camera. Edd asks how much it cost Tom, but Tom says that the price is not important and explains that the camera will change their lives forever. Edd asks again how much it cost, and Tom says it cost all of their savings, but explains that it will pay for itself in time.
They then record Matt running into a vending machine and getting free chocolate. He gets the chocolate but then the machine falls over and nearly flattens him. Matt sighs in relief but it flips over again randomly squishing him. Edd then asks how this will get them money. Tom uploads the video to YouTube and waits for the "fame-I mean, money!". The only view they get is from a CEO from the internet who runs to tell everyone that what Matt has done is the most important discovery since air. Unfortunately, he trips over a wire and blows himself and the internet building up. This disables the internet so Edd decides to make a proper movie. Tom says that he will write the script, Edd will find props, Matt will do special effects, and Shoe will find them a star.
Tom came up with an idea for a movie called Space Cats after talking to his brain and rejecting 3 other ideas (Which all included Space Cats as a subplot). Meanwhile, Edd and Matt are getting special effects and props ready. A shoe is auditioning several people for one of the starring roles and ends up choosing a girl wearing pink shoes. Edd asks why she got the part and Tom tells him that she would add some well-needed sex appeal. Matt asks "What about my DVD?" and holds up a DVD case that says "Matt on Matt Action". The others stare at him in shock. They film the movie, burn it in the microwave, and settle down to watch it. Laurel says that she thinks they're a great team, when suddenly Shoe comes flying out of nowhere, knocking her out and putting her face down on the floor in a pool of blood. The others watch the film, completely unaware of what has just happened. After it is over, they comment on which parts they liked best, as Laurel is dragged down the hallways, leaving a trail of blood behind. The boys believe the film to be "brilliant", despite its laughable quality. The boys somehow distribute the movie to theaters, hoping for it to be a hit. Tom remarks that even if they don't, it's "not the end of the world".
The boys emerge from the theater to find London in complete chaos, as the city is reduced to a raging inferno and panicked citizens shouting, "It's the end of the world!" Another survivor screams "That movie was terrible!". Tom then remarks, "See? This is why you guys should never listen to me", and the credits roll.
After the credits, Edd spots Shoe in the bedroom having sexual intercourse with Laurel's pink shoes.
Behind the Scenes

- When Tom is writing the script, a checkered pattern tie on the lamp can be seen. A similar lamp is owned by Tom in real life.
- The tank's serial number is "CDT-01", the same as the one in Moving Targets.
- The conveniently placed cinema might have been a running gag from Zombeh Attack 3, where Matt lands on some cheese in a pan that says, "conveniently-placed cheese".
- At the end of Fan Service, a poster for MovieMakers is behind the real Edd. There's also a poster for WTFuture.
