Storyline

Mr. Viral is a dark comedy satire meets revenge thriller about viral marketing and the Internet. It's a story of revenge, gone viral. In the trenches of a struggling prominent advertising agency, three un-happy ad execs become preoccupied with their secret online social lives. A brilliant but jaded former creative director attempts to outdo his smarmy replacement and show the world its true face, through his twisted viral marketing campaigns. Secretly, he re-brands his agency's top family products, selling children's toys as sex toys and adult diapers as kinky wear, building an epic cult following online and inspiring a massive rivalry between agency and anarchy. Meanwhile, a suspicious gay account girl is desperate to uncover her wife's infidelity, but discovers the cruelty of e-stalking in the process. All the while, a lonely, middle-aged accountant searches for love on the Internet, but learns a harsh lesson about love in cyber space. All three stories become linked by the ...

Mr. Viral Review
1 October 2012 | by HinksonjessicaSee all my reviews

Mr. Viral was an energetic roller coaster ride from start to finish. The film takes a look at the reality of the ad industry. It also addresses how social media has not only influenced the way we communicate, but the actuality of what holds people's attention in today's world. Humor, though it may be dark is your only saviour. Jefferson Brown(Colin) is compelling in that he doesn't make obvious choices; meaning that you don't know what he is going to do. As an audience member I find that exhilarating. Christian Lloyd(Andy) is brilliant with his comedic timing! Alex Appel(Stacy) gracefully finds moments of comedy through to drama. In one moment she will have you laughing, in another tears will be welled up in your eyes. With a great cast, great cinematography; Mr. Viral is a great film.
