Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials Goes Viral With This In-Universe PSA

Viral. Get it? GET IT?!

Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials might have borrowed a page from fellow young adult dystopian flick The Hunger Games when they created this in-universe ad. It describes the changes your body goes through when it’s exposed to the Flare in a very Fallout/classic grade school in-class movie way. The Flare, for those of you not in the know, is a deadly virus affecting the population in the Maze Runner books. Easy, yeah?

If you didn’t check out The Maze Runner last year, give it a shot: it’s a neat, incredibly atmospheric young adult dystopian sci-fi movie based on a book of the same name. The book is also a fun read, if not just a little short.

What do you think of this tongue-in-cheek ad?
