(Comic Canon only) Clayface went to Las Vegas after he realized he never gave on his dream to be a star. No one gave him the time of day. One day, he cried to the hotel mogul Steve Zynn and said he needed a job. Clayface took a piece of himself and created a young girl named Annie then used her to garner sympathy in his audition. She ran in pretending to be a sad, starving girl. Zynn was so embarrassed for them and let Clayface audition. Luckily, Clayface blew him away. In case he needed her again, Clayface kept Annie in his hotel room and told her to stay. He got so successful so fast, he completely forgot about her. She eventually became sentient and curious about the world then left. People winced at a grubby orphan so she mimicked show girls but got too much attention. She changed her look and infiltrated a high school. Clayface played the entire ensemble in his show.
Over a year later, the success began to overwhelm him. Thanks to the Teal Man Group, Clayface went on another bender combining a runner's high with whippets. Clayface's manager Steve Zynn found him stuck to his ceiling and gathered he was approaching mental collapse from being overworked. He suggested a more precise system of partying because he had a lot of work to do: a photo op for an S&M convention at The Candy Store, guest judging the Vegas Dragcon, and a private show at a sweet sixteen for the daughter of the renowned mobsters, the Romano Family. Clayface bemoaned how people wanted a piece of him every second of every day. Zynn told him that's what being a star was. He also brought up Pine and Steller's offer. Clayface still refused to give one of his fingers because he was sure it would be used for sex. Zynn decided to tell them they would circle back. Clayface declared he needed a break. Zynn was fine that but said the Romano party was non-negotiable. Clayface was aghast and thought that was the worst one.
Zynn reminded him that was the one rule the mob had, don't say no to them. Clayface noted he was made of clay so a bullet or leg bashing wouldn't do much to him. He went to eat at We Break-a-Bread and yo face and got the best booth after threatening to have them shut down. He asked for a bottle of their finest Carlo Rossi. Two Romano mobsters happened to enter and immediately agreed they should report it to the Italian American Defamation League. They recognized Clayface then threatened to dissolve him with sodium and water. He was thrown in a trunk and taken to a Romano compound in the desert that used to be an escape room business. Sasha Romano had him man the DJ booth and ordered him to only play the B-sides so no one or nothing steals the spotlight from her. He was surprised B-sides were still being made. She revealed they hired celebrities to do degrading work and make them squirm on purpose as an ultimate power move. He found that bleak. She ordered him to make them laugh or they would take him on their European summer trip.
Clayface made up an excuse of having to go to the restroom and was escorted. A boy recognized him and wanted a selfie just for the irony. A girl asked him for an autograph. He saw a note instructing him to hand the paper back to him and say thank you if he wanted to leave the party. He did and was elated he was saved. For the grand finale, Sasha Romano's new car was presented but she had a meltdown over it not being gold. The girl pulled Clayface behind the curtain and told him it was their chance with everyone distracted. Clayface assumed she was a fan and insisted he could escape on his own. She asserted he did because the place was built like a fortress. He learned her name was Annie but before she could answer why she was helping them, they foguht off some goons. They made their way outside. She told him to steal a security jeep and try to flee back to civilization. He was surprised she wasn't coming with him. She finally snapped and revealed she was his daughter and he forgot all about her.
They ended up in the same jeep and Annie recounted her life. To his surprise, she refused to rejoin him. He still didn't want to just leave her out in the world and offered her to be his awful celebrity kid. Annie drove through the security fence. The guard reported Clayface's departure and suggested it was time to get the Jonas Brothers as replacements. Clayface still wanted to know why she bothered to rescue him. She admitted he was her father and she couldn't just let him die. Clayface realized what a massive mistake he made, called her tough, kind, and strangely smarter then him, and asked for a second chance. She wasn't sure and asked if she could think about it.
