With followers in the hundreds of thousands; Senan Byrne and Eddie Whelan are the international social media sensation you’ve probably never heard of, unless you Vine.
Thankfully director Charlo Johnson’s latest offering, Gone Viral, gives this pair of psychiatric nurses an opportunity to explain the who, what, when of Vine and how going viral has affected them both in a positive sense (direct messages from Swedish models) and in a negative way (Eddie’s nose apparently gets a lot of flack).
Narrated by Senan and Eddie themselves, the film feels like you’re sitting in a pub with the lads sharing a pint.
Gone Viral reveals more about the psyche of the 21st century bearded Irish male than a Snapchat from last year’s Leprechaun convention on Croagh Patrick.
At only eighty Vines long, Gone Viral is definitely worth a watch, toilet humour aside, they’re very funny guys.
