'Contagion' Promoted By Warner Brothers With Living Bacteria Billboard (VIDEO)

Living Bacteria Billboard Promotes Film

If you've got a weak stomach, you might want to skip this video.

Maybe the movie too, since it's reportedly just a tad bit too real.

Gross? Possibly. Memorable? Definitely.

This is really redefines viral marketing.
