Syrup (1-May-2013)

Director: Aram Michael Rappaport

Writers: Max Barry; Aram Michael Rappaport

From novel by: Max Barry

Keywords: Comedy, Advertising

Film adaptation of the Max Barry novel of the same name follows a slacker's head-first plunge into the cutthroat world of advertising.

"Scat", a slacker and daydreamer looking to tap into his gifted brain for a "million-dollar idea", comes up with a concept for an energy drink called "Fukk" that he pitches to roommate "Sneaky Pete" and soft drink advertising executive "6". What follows is a darkly-comedic take on corporate America and modern marketing techniques as "Sneaky Pete"'s true-to-his-name betrayal and theft of the "Fukk" trademark leads to "Scat"'s teaming up with the maneating "6" as part of an elaborate scheme to bring him down and reign supreme.
