Last week Wreck-It Ralph was released on Blu-ray and DVD. There was a small viral campaign to go along with the theaterical release, which consisted of creating an actual Fix-It Felix Jr. arcade game and commercials promoting other arcade games, but now comes the most interesting aspect of the viral, which comes in the form of a mockumentary short. Hit the jump to see the full video.

The mockumentary mirrors the documentary King of Kong, and centers on Garlan Hulse, child gaming prodigy, whose claim to fame was earning the top score of a Fix-It Felix Jr. game, only to be ousted weeks later. The mockumentary is called Garlan Hulse: Where Potential Lives. Wreck-It Ralph director Rich Moore narrates this hilarious short which runs at 28 minutes, a bit lengthy for a gag that is filled with a bio, Garlan’s rise and fall and rise to fame, but ends up being a perfect fit to the Wreck-It Ralph marketing scheme.

The video is somewhat darker than any of the other Wreck-It Ralph marketing videos and the actual movie itself. But it is quite funny. Wreck-It Ralph is now out on store shelves in both Blu-ray and DVD.

Here’s the video and tell us what you think.
