When a music producer, Hippo, sees a video of Chyna singing that Cameron accidentally uploads, he decides that he wants to make a music video. But he changes Chyna's name to "String Cheese" and makes her wear a string cheese costume, much to her dismay. To make things worse, Cameron becomes her manager and tries to get Chyna to do the video. Meanwhile, Fletcher and Paisley compete against Olive and Angus in a home economics challenge.
Cameron accidentally releases a song that Chyna made up onto the Internet, attracting the attention of tons of viewers including a hip hop producer named Hippo. Unfortunately, when they meet him, he turns out to be a bad at everything a producer should be good at, changing Chyna's name to "String Cheese" and forcing her to wear a string cheese costume. To make matters worse, Cameron wants to become Chyna's manager so she would do the song. In the end, Chyna records her song but is declined when Hippo declares that "Music is for chumps. Movies are in right now." Cameron then records his own version of the Titanic called "The Pietanic" for Hippo. Meanwhile, Olive, Angus, Fletcher, and Paisley compete in a home economics class challenge of three rounds in which Olive and Angus win.
