60 second digital content for a brand to use on web platforms. Our main character uploads a video he has created to share with the world. Things quickly unfold from there, with views, likes, shares, comments and even reaction videos all piling up at an impossible rate. All during which our hero desperately tries to keep pace with the meteoric rise of his own star. The texts and calls pour in, he is getting recognized by strangers, and all the while his tech and social media obsessed roommate helps him track the viral spread and his ascension to stardom. It is a viral video that moves at the speed of light and is nothing like the world has ever seen before.
