Just how low will they go for a YouTube sensation?
Three online video creators are trying in vain to create a viral video. They have cute, boring spots that are largely ignored on YouTube—and they have increasingly impatient investors. Enter a mysterious consultant whose videos have garnered millions of hits—by dispensing with good taste and adding titties. Overjoyed by their newfound success, the team pops out one popular video after another, from Sasquatch and Yeti in a curling match to women performing fellatio on beer bottles. But as their business starts to take off, they realize that they know nothing about their consultant. Co-Writer and director Taylor Guterson (Old Goats, Cinequest 2012; Burkholder, Cinequest 2014) partnered with Erik Alskog (co-writer, cast-member) to produce Viral Viral -- a darkly comedic tale of the crackpot underbelly of public media where nothing is off-limits in the quest for hits. - Pia Chamberlain
