Amir is a performance artist and stand-up comedian, who creates real characters and stories that unfold online in media real time. When his staged fight videos from the streets of Oslo go viral and hit international news headlines in 2014, a Los Angeles based advertising agency thinks it’s all real and spots an opportunity to exploit Amir’s newfound controversial fame. They want to make it part of an edgy marketing campaign for an energy drink, but Amir has his own plans. Amir plays himself in this reenactment of what happened in this delightfully warped satire on the absurdities of advertising in the 21st century.
