This article focuses on motion picture director Noam Gonick and his film "Hey, Happy!" It's a gay romantic comedy about a young DJ named Sabu who works at an open-air pornography shop on wheels—and who's also working on his life's mission of having sex with 2,000 different men. Sabu believes that by doing so, he'll bring on an apocalyptic flood, and he has his eyes set on Happy, played by Craig Aftanis—a UFO-obsessed virgin—as the 2,000th man.
