Giant Fake Boobs? Hmm, Must be A Viral


"Please find the attached viral." Seriously? Seriously? Could that be any more 2006? Or was it 2005? Wake up people! For those still asleep, let us offer a bit of help. Repeat 300 times, slap yourself on the forehead, repeat. "A viral is not a viral until it has become a viral. Viral is a result, not an intent. Just because I call something viral does not mean it will become a viral."

OK? All set? Good. Now we can share with you this...all together now....VIDEO. Vee. Eye. Dee. Eee. Ooo. VIDEO. Not viral. VIDEO. Promoting the PS3 and XBOX 360 game Conflict, this silly video of two guys using high School pranks to make their way to the front of the stage has the two most important things makers of this sort of thing believe are key: one big left boob and one big right boob. Naked, no less. And, sadly, fake. Aside from the idiocy of it all, is it really that hard to find a model with naturally huge boobs? We could point you to ten right now.

But what do we know. Buffoonery like this has "gone viral" many times before. Who knows if this one will. Who really cares.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. "A viral is not a viral until it has become a viral." I think I'm going to get that tattooed on my forehead.

Good to see you carrying the point that viral is an objective, not a format. Another point for your rant -- it is "digital" but it definitely isn't "interactive."

Of course, just like the Publishers Clearing House mailers in the states that use the star bursts, stamps, forms and celebs to get response -- this will probably work with this audience and pull like a train.

LOL! ...any media sent to entice interaction, particularly, in a below the radar fashion, is a sneeze hoping to "go Viral". It is a sneeze. A sneeze is designed to spread the message and if it reaches a critical mass and infects a ka-zillion, then it's a viral. Here is an example of fine work (imho) designed to "GoViral" for Yahoo's HotJobs (hear the gong?)...never did spread beyond a small cult of ardent adrant types... ;)
