Before I joined the advertising world, the only viral I knew was the fever kind.
Never did I imagine it would be something my entire life would revolve around.
"Any kind of digital advertising tool that can be forwarded to multiple users due to its engaging and entertaining content."
Or, according to my senior copywriter, a viral is something you work your ass on for months and finally does not get released. Lolz!
Here is a cool viral forwarded by my friend Jimbo the dimbo (ps. No, a dimbo is not a cross between a dumbo and a bimbo. And no I am not passing on subliminal messages to you. No, there aint no polar bears in Antarctica.)

It’s a promo of the recently released (in US) animation called Igor with the voices of John Cusack and Jay Leno!
There’s a small interesting game in the Igor microsite, so in true Advertising sense I was analyzing the specification, feasibility, implementation and execution of the promotion of that online standalone viral… or in layman’s term – I was simply wasting a few minutes of my office-hours.
And hey, I high scored!!!
Just a little bit funny though, that the exact score I got was 6:66! I knew it! There was always something wrong about me since I was a kid. The way I skinned the neighbor’s cat or pushed my nanny down the flights of stairs always seemed weird because the other friends I knew back then never used to do those kinda stuff.
They used to tell me their folks didn’t allow them to do that, but as for me, I just simply obeyed the strange voices in my head
And then when I was in 9th standard, those voices told me to buy the latest album of Backstreet Boys and that was when I stopped listening to those horrible voices, for good.
So there you have it. Me a 666.
In other online related news I came across today, my good friends from samaw.com mentioned that there was a google pagerank update recently and zawlbuk.net at PR 5 is currently the highest among all Zo-centric sites according to samaw.com.
dipr.mizoram.gov.in is also currently at PR 5, but I read somewhere that government (official) sites are given higher priority for SEO or something like that so I guess it does not count.
hmar.net and delhithurawn.net are currently down. Can anybody explain?
( Lal, I told you not to fiddle around with the codes while drinking )
My blog is currently a PR 4. Yay!!!
