Go Viral is of the twenty-sixth episode of season two (and thirty-eighth episode overall) of Regular Show.
Pops is accidentally sent to the computer world during a video for a two-on-two competition between Mordecai, Rigby, Muscle Man and Hi Five Ghost.
Mordecai is arguing with Muscle Man and Hi Five Ghost about the computer sign-up schedule, but the latter pair still have five minutes that they want to spend watching viral videos. Mordecai and Rigby sit and wait while the other two watch Old Man Horseshoes, Wedgie Ninja, Road Hog, Glockenbear and others. Mordecai and Rigby make a bet with Muscle Man and Hi Five Ghost to see who can create the most popular viral video; when they fail to come up with something good by themselves, they try making a video of Pops jumping on a trampoline.
By dropping a refrigerator on the trampoline they send Pops even higher than they had hoped - so high, in fact, that he ends up porting into another dimension. Mordecai and Rigby must follow Pops into the other world to save him. This new world turns out to be the internet. Here, subjects of viral videos are trapped inside screens and forced to relive their videos on loop for all eternity.
Mordecai and Rigby see Pops faced with the Warden of the Internet, an old woman who lives inside a screen of her own. She believes that the internet should only be used for serious purposes and that viral videos are a plague whose producers and actors must be punished. She sends Pops into a screen of his own to jump on the trampoline forever.
Rigby and Mordecai must save Pops. Rigby shuts the Warden off, and he and Mordecai help all the other viral videos escape. Amidst the confusion, Pops accidentally reactivates the Warden. She is furious and begins chasing all the viral videos through the internet.
Led by Mordecai and Rigby, almost all of the viral video characters manage to escape back into the real world. However, the Warden grabs Pops' ankle, and Mordecai and Rigby struggle to help him. Wedgie Ninja suddenly appears and gives the Warden a major wedgie, stalling her while Mordecai, Rigby, and Pops escape. Wedgie Ninja sacrifices himself, the Warden landing on top of him, resulting in both of their deaths. Mordecai, Rigby, and Pops then save Road Hog, Old Man Horse Shoes, etc. from the internet.
When everyone from the internet get back to The Park, they find Rigby has caught everything on tape. Mordecai and Rigby upload it to the internet, and it gets 2,000,000 views, winning the bet, and getting the $20 from Muscle Man and Hi Five Ghost.
