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.

A cautionary tale of marketing gone awry.
18 October 2012 | by Kimmagee-506-532866See all my reviews

A truly odd ( in the best sense) film about an odd ( in every sense) industry. As someone married to a marketing guy, I thought I'd seen it all. This film had some very surprising plot twists that I definitely did not see coming. In a world of predictability, Mr. Viral keep me guessing. Some very interesting characters- well written and well preformed.

I appreciated the Toronto and Montreal locations , and the bright colour and effects added to the chaotic and at times surreal world that the film reveals.

It's at times funny, and at times disturbing- sometimes both at the same time.
