Can you force this cartoon to go viral?

David t. Jones, the pencil behind Adweek’s Ad Land cartoon, has this idea. He’s drawn the cartoon below and is trying to force it to go viral. He’s sending it to ad blogs, given it its own Web page and posted it on YouTube. The cartoon simply explains what he’s doing, and so isn’t that funny or pass-along-worthy. But that’s sort of the idea, apparently. Can you force something to go viral, even though it’s not, really? Or something like that.
