A Wanna-be Cowboy named Wade wants to be big by becoming an Actor. Being featured in a Commercial for Cigarettes and only riding in the Background made him feel like the next John Wayne. Right after his Agent told him that he did not get a Role as a Filmstar, he wants to convince his Agent that he can take care over every Stunt without problems. His Horse trips over a rock causing him to fall back on the ground head first, transecting his entire neck.
