Now normally, I wouldn't write about a viral video, but this one is extremely odd.

This video (click here) was released over the weekend on LiveLeak.com, and allegedly features the WWE's Rey Mysterio busting into a store with two ostriches trailing behind before assaulting a customer and a clerk.

Whoever pieced the clip together did a great job. It appears the scene was grabbed from a Mysterio match and was superimposed into this "surveillance video."

Since its release, some commenters believe the ad is for a gum commercial. Overall, most viewers were left baffled.

Whatever the motive behind the video, it has managed to garner attention. As it currently stands, this is nothing more than a viral video with no rhyme or reason behind it. But, as we have seen with the WWE, many companies release a series of enigmatic videos in order to piece their message together.

Some manage to pull it off, while others fail disastrously.

In the end, I am hopeful that this actually turns into something. Otherwise. it was a lot of work for nothing. I guess we will have to see if this was a flash in the pan or if it's the beginning of something more.

Now it's your turn to weigh in. Is this for a new product or fodder for someone with a lot of time on their hands?
