Media Sign Commitment To Make Any Video Or Photo That Is Irish ‘Viral’
IN a landmark deal which will serve as a boost to the ever expanding viral social media sector in Ireland, the Media has signed a commitment to make every video, photo or utterance, regardless of its merit, subject matter or content viral so long as it’s Irish.
The deal received the unilateral backing of the entire Irish media, but some minor details still need to be ironed out.
“Ah, it’s of huge comfort to me as a creator, yes,” explained Sean Mangan whose recent video ‘Ah Jaysus Is That Corn In My Poo?’ received huge backing from the majority of Irish news publications.
“Turns out it was a yellow Skittle, don’t even remember eating it to be honest, but I didn’t expect me filming my poo to end up on 4,356 Irish sites but I’m delighted it did,” Sean added.
Sean received a special certificate from the Irish Independent for his contribution to Irish Craic Online.
“There’s something about a video that is Irish,” explained social media expert Pete Rix, “that is just, so, like Irish, ya know? Did you see the one where the girl says ‘Mam’ instead of ‘Mom’,hi-fucking-larious”.
Hugely popular social media content is much coveted by the media as they chase ad revenues and with mad Irish bastards providing some of the most viral content this new commitment is seen as key for Irish media’s growth.
“We ran a picture of a Tayto’s crisp packet on the ground somewhere in Brazil and people were like ‘oh my God, what the fuck, laugh out loud, is that a Tayto crisp packet on the ground in Brazil?'” explained Richard Head, editor of website Begorrah.ie, “that picture was viewed 56 million times”.
Such explosive viral Irish content is increasingly prevalent as several recent videos highlight. A video of Robert Downey Junior saying ‘Dublin’ in an interview from 2009 went viral with 3 million views, last week as well as the moving video of Celine Dion’s ‘My Heart Will Go On’ accompanied by the image of bacon and cabbage.
It is projected that by 2019 every Irish person in existence will have been the subject of Irish-centric viral post.
