John St., the Canadian advertising agency that brought you the YouTube hits "Catvertising" and "Pink Ponies: A Case Study" is back with a new ad for Buyral, a (fake) service that promises to use a network of clickers to help your Web video go viral.
"The viral video. Millions of views. Millions in sales," a warm male voice says as the video begins. "What's their secret? What made them go viral? We did."
As the camera pans across a room filled with people, he ads, “It’s simple. Now you can pay for the clicks you need to make your video go viral.”
It just gets funnier from there. The fake advertisement tells us that Buyral has an outreach program for the elderly and a L'il Clicker program for school kids. An executive says the company is constantly working on new ideas, helping videos to go "viraler and viraler."
