1. Going Great White is a funny mockumentary filmed in Oregon, WI by two Oregonians, Frank G Caruso and Frank X Sommers. Done in the same style as "Best in Show," "Going Great White" pokes fun at the world of Multi-Level Marketing with an over-the-top depiction of a fictional company, ONITRAC.

There are many laughs to be had with this one. However, if you're a multi-level marketer yourself, you might not find it funny.

2. Awesome mockumentary about ONITRAC, a fictional MLM scheme that is frighteningly similar to real MLM schemes. It is a little over-the-top, but unfortunately its portrayal of the pyramid scheme world isn't too far from reality.
