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.

Awesome-ness !!!
27 September 2012 | by baricfilm-1See all my reviews

Solid film with a terrific cast -- a visually enterprising experience! Right from the start ... The drama begins with intensity and the film journeys in a non-stop ride that goes on and on.

Once in a while a film comes along that thrills, excites and entertains ... Mr Viral is that film. The cast is an eclectic mix of talented artists with a flare for the sensational.

Mr Viral takes you on a journey that alerts the senses to the painful frailties of humanity, banked up against the electronic "world wide web" -- that connects us all!

A FUN MUST SEE !!! Alex Boothby shines in the directors chair in his debut feature film.
