Dean and Quinton are two dopey computer hackers who live in the shadow of their dead friend and mentor Donald Chen - Father of Megadawn. Carrying on in Donaldʼs footsteps, Dean and Quinton attempt to infect the large retail chain Mall-Mart with the Megadawn computer virus. To the pair's surprise the virus starts to spread and mutate far quicker than expected. Rozar, an apathetic pizza delivery guy, gets wrapped up in the duos bumbling when they canʼt pay for the strange pizzas heʼs hawking. Before long the neighbourhood falls into chaos with street vandals and overgrown pizza toppings running amuck.
Will Dean, Quinton and Rozar be able to stop Megadawn, and save the world?!

    I like how you incorporated the teaser format as a kind of in-joke, although viewers might want more of a payoff than that. Still, it's an interesting premise. I'll keep an eye on you guys.
